Incessant hashtag use is so irritating. Other things that are wildly annoying - Listing huge bunches of names on followfriday for about 10 tweets in a row. Or RTing friends to the point where you have to unfollow half the friend group so that your twitterfeed isn't an echo chamber. I hope Twittersnooze comes back, I haven't found an alternative yet for when my friends go to conferences or temporarily decide that Twitter is All About Marketing!!![tm].

I use a different avatar than the default for my twitter account, but not my face. As long as they don't use the default, I don't really care. Another thing that really irritates me on twitter... When an organization goes to a meeting of some sort and will tweet quotes from the speaker incessantly... or if someone goes to a big conference like comiccon and feels need to tweet every 2 seconds about every single thing. Don't spam me! Or when people put the # sign in front of every.single.word. Obnoxious.

Yay sontaikle, I'm glad I am not the only one who has two accounts! One personal, one professional. It just makes sense for me! Thank goodness for apps that makes it easy to manage multiple.

I would never use my face as my avatar. I don't know the majority of people who follow me (I write for several local blogs here in DC, and that's where most of my followers come from) and frankly I don't need strangers running up to me and asking if I'm me (which happens - not often - but enough so it's creepy, even without plastering my face all over the internet).

I walk the fine 140 character line when I am out and drinking. I have someone proof my tweets before I send them. I also walk the fine line with my real user name. I joined twitter as a joke for my husband. He told me about Demi Moore going as mrskutcher and thought it was sweet. I signed up as mrsXXXXXX since I never took his last name IRL. The only funny thing is that now when folks see me around or at tweet ups they call me mrsXXXXX and I usually don't respond.

I have two twitter accounts :) One where I only follow friends and another where I only follow blogs and other interesting folks that aren't friends. It helps cut down on the "following too many people" mistake.
