First off, the title of this entry sounds right in my head, but sure looks weird once typed out.
Over the last month, I've been making a consious effort to use Twitter more. I don't know that I'll ever generate business from it, but I'm sure making a lot of interesting connections.
One thing I've noticed is a surge in people following my tweets. A month ago I was at maybe 350, and as I write this I'm at 422 (thought it was 423 earlier today). In the grand scheme of things 422 sure isn't a lot, but that's a 20% increase in a month.
So what am I doing? Pretty much the following:
- Trying to retweet things from people I follow that relate to accounting, social media, or things I find interesting.
- Tweet articles like the above.
- Reply back to people I follow.
- Try to keep up on the hashtag #backchannel which is a Detroit based conversation group. Met a couple of interesting people from there.
I can't figure out yet how most of these people are finding me. I'm also not sure if this is a giant time waster or not. I figure connections with people are good.
Are you tweeting? My twitter ID is joelungar. Mention me in a tweet and I'll follow you back.
