Welcome Twitter Friend

Since Twitter seems to be the hottest social media right now, I wanted to create a Twitter about me page because I thought it might be helpful.  If you just want to read my blog click: Branding & Marketing. Feel free to subscribe through my RSS feed or Email feed if you find this blog helpful to you.

If you just followed me on Twitter, thanks for the follow. I don’t have mine set up to automatically follow but I will check out your Twitter page and profile. Chances are I will follow you if you appear to be:

  1. someone who blogs about marketing, or branding or social media
  2. someone who is interested in leadership (especially helping young women learn skills)
  3. someone who lives in the Akron Ohio area
  4. someone who writes, blogs, tweets about green business, sustainability of profits in a green world etc.
  5. A personal/business friend who decided to learn to tweet and is following me because they don’t “know” any other tweeters… or twitterers. What are we called anyway?

I’ve been blogging since Feb 2006, but only tweeting since May 2008. I learned about twitter May 2007, but was so overwhelmed with all the blogging stuff I was trying to learn, decided not to jump in until a year later.  I’ve learned most about Twitter from my ABC blogging group (Akron Bloggers Community) that meets once a month. (thanks everyone!)

Some of my favorite Twitter aps:

    Twitpic - posting a photo
    Tiny URL – to shorten the tweet link and personalize the link
    Tweet Deck – to help sort out some of the confusion and search topics
    Twirl - to do quick ones when I’m working on something else (I know, multitasking isn’t good for the brain!)

Some of my popular blog posts about Twitter are:

Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite aps are, how you got started in Twitter or another social media application! Thanks!

  1. Wow Chris, I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog and website from following a tweet by the Publicity Hound, Joan Stewart today!

    I’ve been blogging about an old traditional craft, chair caning and wicker repair, since 2004 and have just recently begun Tweeting. Not knowing all about it yet, has intimidated me a bit and so far, I’ve really just been following everyone else.

    After just reading a bit on your site, I’m more confident and hope to add my own tweets to the conversations real soon. Thanks again for laying it all out here in a very reader friendly form for an older gal to figure out!

    Your online presence is just fine! You certainly don’t come across as a beginner on Twitter, but if you’ve been blogging since 2004, you’re ready to microblog on Twitter.
    I am following you and look forward to more tweets!
    thanks,
    Chris

  3. Hi Chris,

    I found your article on Women Partner’s website and followed you to Twitter. I read few more of your articles on Twitter. I’m trying to get into the strategic marketing field and would like to know the views of professional marketers. I am new to Twitter, therefore still trying to learn it. I will be following your blogs and articles as they are very interesting.

  4. Hi Harvinder:
    Thanks for the compliment. I’m not sure which Women Partner’s website you saw my article, but thank you.

    I find strategic marketing fascinating too and I hope that you continue to find my blog helpful & interesting.
    Thanks!
    Chris

  5. HI Chris,

    What a marvellous idea to have your twitter URL jump to a specific page about Twitter! Dang, now why didn’t *i* think of that? :D

    I’m going to remedy that RIGHT NOW :-) Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    I’m constantly amazed at how easy it is to meet fascinating interesting people via Twitter, and I’d like to give you a big warm thank you for tweeting about one of my webpages. It is MUCH appreciated.

    Ciao for now, keep on tweeting!
    Cheers

    Thanks! I like tweeting about your webpages because you provide REAL value and that’s what I believe my readers are looking for!

    I really like your Twitter Welcome page too. Sounds like you’ve really got a handle on it all by juggling 8 twitters and I don’t know how many websites. Whew!
    Thanks for taking the time to comment.
    Chris
