On today’s Tech Help for Churches, Twitter: Spam, Bacon, and Steak — Which type of account do you have? | Tech Help for Churches

There are three types of accounts: Spam, bacon, and steak. Broadly speaking, they’re different based on who they’re focussed on. A spam account is solely focussed on the spammer. He wonders how he can get more and more money out of you for himself. A bacon account is a bit of a hybrid. Usually it’s a small-business person who just doesn’t quite understand social media and is targeting the wrong people. It might be an account where it provides some value, but it’s either mostly advertising or split 50/50. Steak accounts are all about giving. The steak tweep tries to figure out ways to help with only an occasional ask.

Try and make your twitter account like this. Try and make it a giving account which only asks on occasion.
