Don't post inspiration quotations in your Twitter account, since it usually just tells your subscribers you don't have anything else good to say.

Put up photographs, ask people questions and run an occasional drawing. Encourage your followers to interact with you. Engage them with your product as opposed to using sales pitches repeatedly. Try to find ways to have customers think about how your business and products adds to their way of life, rather than how you will affect them financially.
