    Very interesting (and timely) post, Lisha – thank you!

    However, i have to somewhat disagree with something… the last bit where you say we should follow a protocol of replying, i mean – the timing.

    Yes, sure it is ideal if we reply within the same day… truth is, we don’t live in ideal world. there is only so much time to do so many things!

    so, if you are not focused on Twitter as a network, and you are checking it let’s say once every other day, or once a week – not replying within the day in no way would mean we are not interested…

    If you network on a personal level with your fellow tweeps, they will know that you are not on Twitter on daily basis – so they won’t take it personally when you delay your reply with a few days. what do you think about this new perspective? 🙂

      Diana, I actually agree with you. Yes, responding quickly is ideal, but not possible for most people. I don’t like to be bothered at any minute of the day (I like to keep boundaries between my work and personal life). I typically respond on twitter every Monday, Wed, friday, or something like that. But even a week shouldn’t be that big of a deal. You can view the full conversation if you forgot what the conversation was about 🙂
