Think carefully about using twitter for promotion
Those of us who have been writing online for any great length of time will know just how good a promotional tool twitter can be, but at the moment I would be thinking twice about using it to promote articles on that other site.
You have your reputation to worry about, you see if people click on the links on your twitter and get 'under maintenence' or a 504 error they are less likely to click on any of your future links, especially if this is happening a lot. They may even unfollow you if they are persistantly getting error messages while trying to view your stuff, the less followers you have the less effective your twitter promotion will be.
If you use automatic posting tools, it might be best to pause them if your links are pointing to that site. That way you will not have problems with people trying to access your stuff. Of course you should still try to be active on twitter during this time, just put up a few tweets a day about random interesting things if you can. Ignoring your followers will not help your overall twitter pormotion.
You want a good reputaion on twitter, you should try and actually have some posts that are not links to your work, really try to engage with people. If you are interesting on twitter, people are more likely to click your links, which in turn earns you money.
