There are several ways to lose respect on twitter but the fastest two ways are scheduling tweets without checking mentions and spamming hashtags.
Someone has been spamming a few hashtags I follow. He’s using scheduled tweets and actually sent the exact same tweet at 2pm two days in a row. I tried reaching out to him through a tweet but he never replied. And then came more spam on the hashtags.
When people follow a hashtag, a lot of them will place it in a search column in TweetDeck or HootSuite. TweetDeck users have the option of setting an audible or visual notification anytime there’s a new tweet in that column. That’s what I do for important hashtags. Now imaging getting this notification several times a day from a user that has nothing to contribute to the conversation and is only promoting his business. It’s frustrating.
So be smart on how you use twitter and don’t be a Social Media DB.
