5 Days in the Life of Twitter January 17th, 2009
Recently I joined Twitter .. thank you @MariSmith !! … and I have to tell you; There is really something about Twitter that is unique to all other social media platforms. For those that are not familiar with it I suggest that you really take a look at this short common craft video about twitter. It describes twitter better than I can not possibly describe in writing. http://www.commoncraft.com/Twitter
Here are my perceptions of Twitter and where it will go. First, I have to say that within 5 days I have 654 followers. That I find amazing. Who would want to follow me? A very few but important stories and observations from TWEETING over the past 5 days. My friend was sitting at the gate JFK airport in New York, Posted an entry on twitter “Sitting at gate XX at JFK Airport pissed off. Jet Blue Flight is Delayed an hour !” Within minutes a Jet Blue employee approached him and asked he could be of service. YES, he said: “could I be of service” … starting to see the value here? Another friend of mine is involved with a team heading up a social media initiative for Walmart. Twitter is a big part of the plan. Look for Walmart on twitter. In the short video it is said that “real Life happens between blog posts and emails” Could not be MORE TRUE. Come check out what “real Life “ looks like on twitter. Kind of a 140 character per post reality show for you and all of your followers. As for business, I have connected with some great people so far and it’s going into day six. I got some sympathy from friends knowing that I am going through a hard time in a relationship. According to one follower, I broke the story of US Airways Flight 1549 on twitter BEFORE CNN, giving a play by play 140 character max description as the story unfolded. So that’s my twitter story. I suggest you check it out. I will be there - My twitter name is @PeterStein … See you on Twitter.
