I started to ‘tweet’ tonight in kind of a bad mood. My first tweet was about how some people can ‘suck the fun out of the room.’ But then my friends on twitter changed that. First, I was added to several #followfriday tags. FollowFriday is a tag used in Twitter to recommend people that you enjoy on Twitter. That is always a great honor on Friday.
Follow the #hunks
I also found my name on a couple of new tag I had never seen before: #hunks and #hunkalert. What is that? I have never used that tag, but I think it is a compliment. It was re-tweeted by several women and men last night. My night changed and I was again addicted to “tweeting the night away.” (That should be a song!)
The point of this article
I wrote a ‘tweet’ tonight saying: “How has twitter changed you? I should be writing a 500 word blog post – but twitter is more in-line with my thought process tonight…” I had few great people responded right away with how twitter has changed them. Take a look at what they had to say about how Twitter has changed them:
Greg from Small Business Sherpa
@gregbd I am more engaged with people online, building relationships with people who make me think.
Brendan from BrendanWenzel.net
@BrendanWenzel Twitter has changed me because my thoughts now are in 140 character spurts.
Beth from Confessions of a Mom
@ConfessionsMom 1) Fewer words more meaning. 2) Connections I would have never found 3) Keeps me motivated to blog.
Joe from Business 901
@Business901 Twitter has made Social Media real to me. I find people that I want to interact immediately & without personal barriers.
What a Night!
Twitter can provide a lot of value to extent your reach, build deeper relationships, or broaden your knowledge. Or sometime it can be great therapy. Some natural laws apply on Twitter – such as the more you give, the more you get back in return.
I love participating in conversations. Today, I have had great conversations with people I have may have never met, deeped existing realtionships, and now I am going to bed in a great mood. Thank you ‘Tweeps.”
