I did a session explaining social media recently. Here’s my layman’s explanation of how Twitter works: I follow you so you will follow me. I thank you for following me. I retweet your tweets in the hope that you’ll retweet mine so I get more followers. I suggest my followers follow you if you support me, especially on a Friday. Still with me?
I share my miscellaneous thoughts as ‘tweets.’ These are the random thoughts occupying my headspace in the hope that you will spread them around the world virally and a celebrity will become my Twitter friend. The 140 characters tweet limit stops me from being verbose and boring the pants off you. I hope that by not selling, we will have a connection and it will lead to business, but subtly. You can de-follow me at any time but I won’t know, so my ego is undented. Feeling fog free now about how Twitter works?
I wonder if people will start speaking in 140 character sound bites? Parents of teenagers might say that is already the case. Could save a lot of time and increase productivity. Twitter enables you to connect with anyone, is free and if managed is a great tool and is the modern way to connect and get a job.
