Why do some people rise to the top of Twitter and some people are destined for the dregs? Being “good at Twitter” can look really effortless, but seem exhausting to execute.

The short answer: yes. Keep these 7 reminders above your desk or on a notepad for reference, and you’ll earn a solid Twitter following in no time.

It might seem like all you need to do with Twitter is slap up a profile image, and possible cover image, and then start tweeting. People only follow you because of what you tweet, right? While this is definitely a contributing factor to why someone wants to follow your business or brand, another great element to convince someone to click that follow button and read your content is to have an epic, creative, and powerful Twitter profile.

General consensus seems to be that more followers is better. One of the big stories on Time the other day was "Caitlyn Jenner Reaches 1 Million Twitter Followers Faster Than @POTUS". Who wouldn't want 1 million Twitter followers? It seems like a great way to be able to reach more people and influence them. It turns out that just because you have a substantial following, doesn't mean you can readily convert that following into a substantial impact.

Social media is an important arena for the 2016 presidential hopefuls, especially as their campaigns try to reach specific demographics, such as Latino voters. “Social media is the new coffee shop where neighbors, friends, colleagues and family gather to discuss issues, talk about the candidates and influence others," Ted Cruz’s campaign manager, Jeff Roe, said in a press release. "That is the most important space to succeed as a candidate, especially early on. The opinions of your friends on Facebook or Twitter are far more influential than what any pundit may say on TV. Head count matters more than headlines."

Who you are plays a big role in what you can, and cannot, get away with on social media. This past weekend, Judy Mozes, the wife of Israeli Interior Minister, tweeted a racist joke about President Obama. The tweet caused uproar across Twitter and across both countries. People objected to both the racism of the tweet and the potential damage it could do to US-Israeli relations. Mozes’ tweet and the reaction to it highlight several potential social media pitfalls.

Twitter is a big old place. And just like big places in the real world, to get noticed you have to be either rich, popular or different. Preferably, all three. Many of us and the brands we work with don’t have the good fortune to be either of the first two. But thankfully, Twitter gives us plenty of chances to be different if we know how.

Euro RSCG Worldwide asked 1,000 dads across the U.S. how the Internet and social media has influenced their parenting skills. The survey revealed that dads are actually doing a pretty good job keeping up with tech and digital (of those who try) -- comparable to their youngsters at home. 77 percent of digital dads are connected to their kids on Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites -- to stay connected, of course, and perhaps also to keep tabs. And, when it's all too much, 61 percent know when to tell the kids to unplug.

In her early years, Social was the talk of the town, a free gift that kept on giving. Kingdoms with odd names like Facebook and Twitter sprouted around her, providing seemingly boundless territory in which Social could shine.
