So, I’ve had a Twitter account for a while now … (2 actually) … I’ve found people, businesses, organizations, hash tags etc. that I follow. I log into my account and I browse. For the past 2 years, other than tweeting a link to a blog post, I’ve (personally) been a Twitter voyeur … but no longer!
I was watching football last night and figured I’d see what people were saying about the game … I wanted a larger perspective than what my Facebook Friends would have to say, so I opened my Twitter App on my I-Phone and went with what I thought would be an active hash tag. (I started with #Tebow).
To my surprise, I enjoyed the community … the wise cracks, cajoling and cheering … It improved the experience of sitting home and watching the game … I quietly posted a note about how watching football still wasn’t for me … no hash tags … just a thought on my own feed, sent out to those few people out there following me. To my surprise, a friend jumped right in … and there I was Tweeting, just like that.
I can now see the fun of Tweeting … how you really do need to develop a different personality for Twitter than other Social Media outlets. The pace is quick, you benefit from being succinct and clever … You create community not only with people you know but by common interests.
This is the power of Twitter … And this is why, if you’re anything like me, it is time to dip your toe into the water, open that account and poke around the Twitter-verse!
