Twitter Mistakes to Avoid at Work

We’re not saying you should practice Twitter abstinence at work, although your employer would appreciate it. Just do so in a professional way and be discreet about what you tweet, especially if you’ve got a public account. If you must complain, gossip, or vent via Twitter, hit the privacy button and do make sure your coworkers or bosses aren’t following you!

Many of these examples of Twitter misuse, as inappropriate as they were, could easily have been resolved if workers communicated face-to-face with their peers. Twitter has changed the way we communicate, but it hasn’t replaced human interaction, and never will.

So tell us, do you have a Twitter horror story to share? Perhaps you were caught tweeting at work? Post in the comments below.
