How to fight more effectively on Twitter? Choose your battle wisely. Do not open battles on many fronts at same time. Concentrate on one enemy only at one time.
Peoples are making mistake of opening battles at several fronts at same time. It will divide your energy in several directions. Your impact will be less.
Some people are fighting against political parties. Some are against specific allegedly corrupt people. Sone are fighting against Paid Media. Some are fighting against corruption in Judiciary. The list of subjects is very long.
My suggestion is simple. At one time you fight only with one issue. Other issues can wait.
Write this One Issue in your twitter profile. This is your mark against which you will keep shooting arrows.
When you feel bored with selected issue. Change it. Select another issue. Revise your twitter profile and then fight only on this other issue.
Regarding other issues, you are always free to Retweet other issues. But your own tweets should be only on One Issue at One time.
What about me? Do I tweet only on one issue? My goal or issue is to get sizable amount of followers so that Supreme Court and High Court consider it fit to examine my suggestion on judicial reforms. They won’t even recognize me unless I have a sizable support from intellectuals on twitter.
All my tweets are directed towards this one single end.
You also can choose your single issue. One at a time. Then tweet only about that issue and on no other issue.
When you tweet about any person by name, you run risks. You do this at your own risk.
But if you choose an issue, which does not hurt any single celebrity or person, you will be acceptable to many. Your followers will increase. Your tweets will be regarded as mature tweets.
Mahabharat says story of Dronacharya, who pointed to a bird sitting on tree and asked his students what they were seeing. All student except Arjuna gave right answer.
He said,”I see only an eye of the bird which I want to shoot with arrow. I see nothing else”.
I suggest you to do same. Survey the issues to fight. Then Select one at one tine. And then start shooting tweet arrows on this single issue alone.
This will increase your mind power as well as impact of your tweets.
