Remember when you were a twitter newbie? When you thought RT meant saying ‘right there’ at whoever you were replying to, and you put #randomwords in hashtag format, and your every tweet was diabolically lame?
This. Sucks. These authors are doing their best, just as we will when we eventually publish. So for the benefit of anyone building their author platform I want to see just how many people are put off like this. As one commenter said, the tweets are always more important than the profile, but can a profile discourage you from looking at the owner’s tweets in the first place? Cast your vote here, leave your thoughts on what does/doesn’t encourage you to follow someone on twitter, and I’ll compile all the results and comments at the end of the month. In the meantime you can grab the code and stick the poll on your own website (so we all get to look like super trendy marketing gurus), and if you’ve got a question for the next monthly marketing muse, I’d love to hear it.

Are you discouraged from following someone whose twitter profile only mentions their books being for sale?
