Katy Perry has a lot going on right now. She’s got a big album coming out and she’s the new face of Cover Girl. So she’s promoting a lot on twitter (remember her giant gold bus?) and now she’s sharing her best twitter tips. These are useful even if you’re not a celeb, I promise. Want to know how to tweet effectively? Here’s what she told USA Today:
- Less is more.
- When you decide to have a glass of wine, put the phone down. Don’t drink and tweet.
- Don’t be self-indulgent.
- Don’t use it just to promote yourself. That’s boring.
- (On addressing rumors): I see a lot of celebrities send out messages like that online, and I think, ‘Sweetheart, nobody knows about this so-called issue because we don’t have you on Google Alert. You’re just throwing another log on the fire.’ I do it only in extreme cases if someone is jeopardizing my character.
- (On haters): I don’t know they exist because I don’t give them attention. If you tried to please everyone, you’d have no sense of self. You’d lose yourself in the process of being a people-pleaser and there’d be nothing unique left.
