7. Do Know What Sort of Content To Post
Post tour dates and tracklistings on TweetMySong. MP3s and videos are much better bets for comments and reblogs. Do set aside marketing dollars to utilize the Promote Features on TweetMySong to help promote your demo. Can't stress enough on using PAID RETWEETS.

8. Do Follow Other TweetMySong members
Not only is following other TweetMySong members a great way to network, it's inspiring to see how other musicians work, tour, write, perform, capture moments, and communicate. Aside from musicians, venues, record labels, and other industry insiders who have a strong TweetMySong presence; following a variety of accounts can be very rewarding for your act.
9. Don't Forget To Tag
Whenever posting, be sure to add a couple tags, so your content can be located more easily. For example, just tagging with the genre of music doesn't make you stand out nor does it make you easily found. Create a tag that is synonymous with you and your music and always incorporate it in your posts.
10. Do Mind Your Manners
Just because TweetMySong can be more personal than your band's official page doesn't mean it's more private. In fact, it's relatively easy to poke through the entire blogging histories of other blogs, even ones that don't follow you. A snarky photo comment is for all the internet to see. including those viewing a reblog of it. So don't post things you'll later regret. Lesson learned the hard way by many.
