Kicking and screaming, I've entered Twitter world.
As an author/speaker, Twitter offers me a great platform to forge relationships and maintain mindshare. It is also a great stream to fish in for ideas and inspiration. Over the last few weeks, I've added Tweeting to my daily to do's. If you follow me, I hope I'm giving you great return on attention.
The people I follow on Twitter do just that, and they don't pollute my Twitter stream with overpostings or irrelevant observations. I call these types Twitter trash. They don't get it and after a few too many bad tweets, I un-follow them.
Here's what I offer if you follow me on Twitter:
* One daily idea for your life or perspective
* Humorous observations and fave jokes from comics
* Music, movie and book tips
* Retweets of my favorite tweets in my stream
* Glimpses of my life on the road as a speaker, including real-time pics I snap with my iPhone.
If you are a big Twitter'er, please recommend me to your follows via #followfriday. My goal is to break one thousand followers by the end of June.
PS — I use Tweetdeck as my platform. It's free, easy to install and allows me to post to Facebook and shorten URLs all in one place. Moreover, I can follow all my replies, mentions of me or my books as well as hot trending topics on the network.
