How much twitter could a twitter tweet tweet
If a twitter tweet could tweet twitter?
My aunt accused me of “living on twitter,” but the truth of the matter is that if I didn’t fashion and maintain a presence on twitter, that follower-interest would certainly diminish. Peaking twitter interest is the proverbial doorway to creating long-lasting friendships, professional relationships, and lucrative entrepreneurial and business opportunities. The question I ask you is, “about WHAT are YOU tweeting?”
A – Announce yourself. If you’re the newbie on the block, it’s always a good idea to announce yourself and let people know a little bit about you. Think of twitter like an AA-meet for instant messengers. No one can interact with you if you’re not letting people know who you are.
B – Be bold. Nobody wants boring speeches, so you must be bold but sincere. Give people a clue to what you’re all about, your personality, your charisma, your humorous side. The bolder you are, the better chance you’ll attract more quality followers.
C – Creative. When you’re twittering, you need to be creative. No, you don’t have to be creative like Leonardo Da Vinci, but you should add some spice to your mix of tweets. Share a favorite photograph, a special song, or maybe just a great article you discovered.
D – Diversity. Though we all may own our own opinions, not everyone wants to just hear your side of the story. Sprinkle your tweets with diverse feedback and opinions. Share testimonials and opeds from around the twittosphere
E – Express yourself. In a world where some people view things as black and white, it’s not always that simple. Make yourself stand out from the crowd of tweeters by bringing out your personality. That’s what makes the Internet a unique place to surf.
F – Fun, fun, fun. All work and no play makes the twittosphere a dull scene. Add a little tweet about your favorite recipe; or maybe, just upload a photograph on twitpic about your latest water slide adventure.
G – Go for the gold. If you’re a job seeker or maybe you’re an entrepreneur trying to test the twitter stream with your ideas and goals, go for the gold. Don’t hold back when an opportunity arises. The worst that can happen is someone might say, “no.” The best that can happen is someone saying, “yes.”
H – Humor. You don’t have to be Jeff Dunham or Dave Chappell to get a laugh out of your twitter followers, but adding just enough wit and spontaneity makes for a stimulating, virtual conversation.
I – Intrigue. Curiosity killed the cat, but a little intrigue never hurt any tweeple. Don’t short sell yourself by giving away the whole bag of goods you offer. Give your twittosphere a dynamic environment by allowing followers to get a taste of what it is you want to convey. Nothing could be more obvious than the 140-character limit, so small nibbles is key.
J – Be a jester.
Comical antics that don’t cross PI lines can be very effective in gaining a quality following…and potential friendships and business relationships.
K – Kaleidoscope. Ever looked through one of those old-timey kaleidoscopes? You know — the ones that painted your view with all kinds of colorful prisms? Paint your twittosphere with lots of colors and thoughts. The more magic you add to the mix; the more interesting your world becomes to others.
L – Legacy. When you tweet on twitter, you are leaving a virtual footprint on the World Wide Web. What do you want others to see and read about you? Do you come across as a slacker or a go-getter? First impressions often leave lasting impressions, so make your tweets count!
M – Magic! Penn and Teller make the stage come alive when they present their magical, mystical, gravity-defying tricks. That’s what gives them the edge in this hard-to-break-into metaphysical performing art field. What edge do you have to offer?
N – Noggin. Peeps use your noggin. If you’re simply ranting and raving about how life sucks and why you hate so-and-so, then you’re bringing negative energy to the twittosphere. When you’re tweeting, add some value to your dialogue. Nonsense passages bring nothing to the table.
O – Open your mind. Stay open to new ideas, new twitter apps, and the thoughts of others. When you do, you create a twitter-friendly environment for others to visit and follow.
P – Positivity. Positivity. Positivity. Believe in karma or the law of attraction? Then, you need to tweet positive posts. Laugh (LOL) in spite of yourself, share an uplifting tune, an insightful quote, or just share a great passage from a book you’ve read.
Q – Question. Ask questions to learn about your followers. What are they reading? What college did they attend? Do they have kids? What type of job do they do? The more interest you show in others, the more interest they’ll show in you.
R – Relax. Don’t turn twittering into a chore. Relax tweeple! Twitter is an engaging portal where we can all learn from one another.
S – Streamline. Streamline and fine-tune your tweets so they’re easy to understand; and convey the message you’re trying to get across. When you do, you find that others will be more responsive and engaging in your conversation. That’s the key to achieving successful communications on twitter.
T – Thoughtfulness. When you’re thoughtful of others’ tweets, and make retweeting (RT) and responding a mainstay in your tweeting dialogue, you discover that more valuable tweeple will start hitching a ride on your own TwitterExpress.
U – Unity. The nicest part about twitter is that it is a virtual community of unity. The “we’re all together in this” atmosphere is what makes twitter so popular and so easily facilitated by thousands.
V – Valor. Demonstrate valor in your tweets. If you’re afraid to speak your mind or think outside the box, then you’re not experiencing twitter the way it was intended. Go ahead and be courageous.
W – Watchful. If you sit back and watch what others are discussing, you’ll find a relevant way to add to the conversation. Don’t second guess a communication if you don’t understand the subject matter.
X – Learn the X’s and O’s of twitter tweets. Research ways to understand and write the language of instant messaging. For example, XOXOXO translates to hugs and kisses. “PI” represents “politically incorrect.” Just as LOL stands for “laugh out loud.” Today, you can find Internet language dictionaries at the touch of your keyboard. This is yet another way to condense your messages without losing the message. Netlingo.com is one of many excellent sources of Internet speak, so check it out.
Y – You. You make the difference in the real world, just as you do in the twittosphere. What are you contributing to the scene? Are you there for friendship, business partnerships, or just to voice your opinion? Whichever it is, or if a personal and professional combination, make your tweets meaningful and informative.
Z – Zen.
The Zen of twitter is the positive and continual flow of positive thoughts, ideas, and information. Zen, in a more popular sense, is meditation that brings goodness and light to the surface of mankind. It is also an important part of twitter, as this is the foundation of prosperity and productivity. What is your Zen? And how do you intend to use it?
