Since Twitter will be changing all our lives, according to Time magazine’s recent cover story, I was thinking about how my use of Twitter differs from other Tweeple — and whether anyone could really publish a Best Practices for Using Twitter.
Don’t most of us think we are right most of the time?
If I, personally, was “right” on Saturday, May 23, when I posted my first tips on What to Tweet About — a blog entry that has so far been my most popular [732 views to date] — then I’d like to re-visit one of my Tweeting suggestions, i.e. “Share an insight that you’ve gotten all on your own and are dying to share.”
Today’s post will feature a dozen of the personal ideas I tweeted since joining Twitter this past March. My hope is that readers will find at least one of these thoughts that resonates with them in a way that invites validation through a personal story.
So tell me if any of the following ring true for you:
About Business in particular:
1 – People are NOT numbers. When businesses fully understand this, their strategies and tools will adjust.
2 – Participation is today’s Marketing & tomorrow’s Loyal Customer Base
3 – To be an effective manager: Realize that you are smarter OR wiser OR more knowledgeable than your staff . . . and coach accordingly.
About Blogging in particular
4 – Quality of content wins over fitting into someone else’s box.
5 – Content-rich means both “key words” and total substance.
About Life in general:
6 – Multi-tasking is vastly over-rated.
7 – Motivation often comes after the Hard Work is done
8 – A Work in Progress: doesn’t that describe Everything?
9 – One cannot give from a depleted state
10 – We are what we think about
11 – We like doing what we do well: when we focus our efforts on our strengths, we build our reputation and loyal followers.
12 – The more I learn, the more I want to know.
