You've probably heard how important content has become. It was never unimportant, but these days everyone is a publisher. And it's not just text -- videos are increasingly common and sought after. You might feel intimidated by putting together a video that showcases your talent and expertise, but what if the video was six seconds? Twitter's Vine is a service that lets users capture and share short, looping videos. Since its release earlier this year, Vine has really taken off, and the latest update supports mentions and lets users shoot footage with a front-facing camera.

Thanks for the comment, Mark. You're right, and your advice is something I have passed along myself in past articles--I should have added that context here, as well. This should definitely be done selectively. With that said, there are plenty of times that I have posted the same exact thing once on Facebook and then on Twitter (such as when I share my articles).

re: 10 Twitter Power Tips
Nice tips, except for the last sentence in Connect Your Accounts: "Then you can write once, post on multiple platforms."

That is something you really DON'T want to do. Each platform is different in terms of format and expectation. And you probably even have different audiences on each platform.

While there are some benefits to connecting your accounts, and there's nothing wrong with the occasional cross-posting, in general one should avoid posting the same exact material to different networks. If you're going to do it, do it on a case-by-case basis; definitely do not set things on auto-pilot!
