In a recent interview Shaquille O’Neil revealed his ‘checklist’ before hitting the ‘post’ button.

“When I send out tweets, it’s 60% to make you laugh, 30% to inspire you, and %10 to promote what I’m selling,” said Shaq.

My mental checklist goes something like that “Would a future employer be offended by this post? Would I reveal this information face-to-face with someone or is this a case of boldly hiding behind a  screen?  Is this post too annoying or preachy?
