Last month at SXSW, I met Andy Baio, founder of Upcoming. He told me about all the great benefits of Twitter and how I had to be on it. I was SO skeptical. Why would you or anyone else care what other people were doing at any given moment?
Andy gave me a quick demo of how it worked and it really clicked. At SXSW, thousands of tech-junkies using Twitter were updating their statuses on where the hottest parties were, who was speaking where, and even updating the Mark Zuckerberg debacle as it was going down. I was very impressed and told myself I’d join when I found the time.
I’ve found the time now and have already officially started to send Twits. Is that what it’s called? Either way, once I get the lingo down, I’m sure it will be helpful for Personal Branding and really giving people the opportunity to get to know me on a much deeper and personal level.
