Is it worth having two twitter accounts?
Some people will tell you that you need two Twitter accounts- one personal and one for business. Personally, I don’t follow this advice. It’s too much trouble to keep two accounts (unless you have a team of writers or a separate business under a different name).
“Experts” will say you don’t want to post something personal that your clients will read. Well, why not? I am a person, no? I have a life, hobbies, children and a personality. In fact, it is this very personality that leads most of my clients to hire me in the first place. I’d never say anything in my personal life that I wouldn’t say in front of a client anyway so there is no reason to create a separate account for my business.
Personally, I find those accounts boring and in most cases, fake. You’re putting on a show of being a professional person in order to try to get a job or look good for clients. I want my clients to know that the real me is professional and honest at all times because that’s just the type of trustworthy person I am.
