Here are the 10 things that need to die a quick and painless death on Twitter. With your help, we can kill them.

10. Please vote for my company X every day for the next 14 days to win Y! Thanks!

9. Anything that ends with the words “Please RT!”

7. Anything passive aggressive. Got something to say to someone? Man (or woman) the hell up, and just say it to them. The world doesn’t need to know about your issues.

6. Check-ins on Foursquare from any place other than a place that a) has an a-list celebrity b) has you backstage c) is on fire d) is in another dimension. And a tip: Starbucks doesn’t fall into any of the above-mentioned places.
