The folks at Twittercounter have written a blog post about cleaning up and optimising yout Twitter profile which is pretty apt given it's the start of a new year and all that. You can find the post here:

I think it's a really good read and I've already put some of it into practice myself :)

What do you think? Will you be doing the same? How do you keep your Twitter profile fresh, interesting and relevant?

I think that the main thing you have to do is to decide who you're tweeting for, and stick to it. For example, I don't particularly like seeing people who I work with in a professional sense post about their personal lives and send jokes to their friends - particularly as they sometimes portray themselves in a rather negative light. So I would suggest having two profiles; a private profile and a professional profile.

Also, don't spam your followers with tweets. Tweet about what you think they'll be interested in, and if you MUST advertise, at least do it discreetly. I have found that if you post what people WANT to read about rather than what you're FORCING them to read about, you will have much better success.
