Thanks for the post Jeffrey! Somebody really took some time to develop this. There are a few things I would do a bit differently, but overall, the most comprehensive policy I’ve seen thus far, and whoever wrote it obviously understands how to leverage Twitter beyond giving status updates and posting news links.
The only immediate gaping hole I see is the need for security (everybody’s favorite subject). Especially with the recent news about Twitter HQ hacks and the increase of malware and spambots, I’m surprised to see a recommendation of using an automatic third party service to follow back everyone who follows you. I would definitely not recommend that as a best practice. My guess is this template was written a few months back.
And talking about third parties, you have to be very careful about some new services like Twitviewer, which use a legitimate guise to steal username and passwords.
