5 Moms I Won't Follow On Twitter

Whenever I see a Twitter profile filled with hashtags, I exit immediately.

Falling into the “mommy blogger” category makes me an influencer in the marketing field. I’m always looking to expand my social media accounts because these numbers are important, and something that brands look at whenever they make big decisions that involve their budget (which trickles down to my paycheck).

At the beginning of 2016, I set out to tackle a social media account that I love to use, but felt that I was behind on in terms of followers: Twitter.

During this period of time, I perused thousands of Twitter accounts every week. In the process, I  noticed that some moms include some pretty wild descriptors on their Twitter profiles. 

While some are out-there and some are just plain boring, reading them has left me scratching my head, wondering that they would waste their 140 characters on these terms.

Here are 5 moms I won’t be following on Twitter any time soon:

1. The “taken” mom

This is by far the worst, and I couldn’t believe that I read this the other day, but people never cease to amaze me! This term brings me back to my early high school days, when we would log into chat rooms with our girlfriends and declare our “A/S/L” upon arrival.

There is absolutely nothing appropriate or professional these days about having this in your Twitter profile— unless your account is being used for dating purposes.

2. The “homeschooling” mom

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with homeschooling. While it’s not my cup of tea, this is the best option for many families out there, and I respect that.

But whenever someone states in their Twitter profile that they homeschool their children, I have found through past experience that this becomes one of the main things that they tweet about and it’s not a conversation that relates to me.

Pass.

3. The “Disney” mom

Pretty much identical reasoning to the homeschooling mom.

I will talk about Disney with my kiddos, but it’s not something I want to tweet about during my free time. I’m okay with having a love/hate relationship with Mickey Mouse.

4. The “PR-Friendly” mom

We get it, you are on Twitter because you are a blogger and want to make sure any PR reps that may cross your Twitter path know that you will welcome their emails with open arms.

But the thing is, whenever you share that you are a blogger and include your website link in your profile, it’s pretty much a given that you're on Twitter.

No need to waste precious space.

5. The “hashtag” mom

Whenever I see a Twitter profile filled with hashtags, I exit immediately.

There is nothing wrong with slipping a hashtag or two in your tweets, but for the love of God, leave them out of your profile description.

Your Twitter profile is your little place to tell people who you really are, so don’t let these terms define you!
