So Twitter considers it spam: But then I took a look at the Huffingtonpost account, as well and the account for several booksellers. ALL links. Conclusion: this rule is bullshit, definitely can't get you banned if you don't do anything else. So if you keep your other ratios good and don't overdo the follow churn, you can pretty much ignore this warning. Personal updates my ass. I care about my link-sharing brand and personal updates are annoying to customers not involved in the convo and bad for the brand.
