Tweets are primarily content-based and many Twitter users like to log in to Twitter and read relevant updates from the people they are following without having to visit other websites. As such, you must refrain from only posting links on your Twitter. People will want to know what you are linking to before clicking on those links.
Having a complicated Twitter name
Your Twitter name should also be easy to remember and match your name or business name without any hidden tricks.

If you consistently post interesting tweets and have a good reputation, people will automatically start following you and retweeting your stuff. However, begging users to follow you or to retweet your posts and links seldom works.
Tweeting in Uppercase only
This one should be obvious but it is amazing how many users still persist in tweeting entirely in upper case. It is as annoying to your readers as sending an uppercase 100-word email to your colleagues.
Obviously, there are other annoying things on Twitter and due to its size, new annoying things are bound to pop up as more and more people start using it on a regular basis. However, these are often regarded as the most annoying things on Twitter and too many people are still doing this.
