Twitter is such a valuable resource for professionals these days.

While Twitter's 140 character limit makes it hard to have real conversations, it offers plenty of space to fire off non sequiturs that show off your knowledge of esoteric topics. And where else can you get constructive feedback from Internet trolls, have elevated arguments over the pronunciation of the word "gif," or get life advice from trusted animals?

But before you go catapulting yourself to social media stardom, there are few ground rules that you'll want to observe. To succeed in the Twittersvere, you'll need to pick the most appealing photo, maintain a good follow ratio, and craft a jealousy inducing profile description.
