Added Twitter To My Toolbox

After avoiding some social networking products like MySpace and Facebook, I decided to sign up for Twitter. To my surprise, within 24 hours, I had 3 followers. I’m not planning on telling people what I had for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  It is just another tool for communicating about Project Management.

    I basically made the decision to just say screw the problem of waiting months and years for a respectable following and used a twitter followers company to obtain me 1k followers. They actually have all stuck around and I’ve obtained 40 retweets in the previous few days, 40 additional than I had ever received previously. Bliss. Very seriously nevertheless there are a great deal of these individuals available, but I considered them qualified. Also there are some 100 % free website programs and such in other places but I’m not a developer so won’t be able to rely on them.

      Tom, thank you for the the comment but I can’t disagree with you more. I want the respectable following and am willing to wait for it. Sure, I only have 865 followers but I’m good with that. The question is, why do you want followers? What message do you want to deliver? This weekend I was followed by some “one” or “thing” with 8140 followers and they only tweeted 3 times. Sorry, that’s not interesting and I didn’t follow them back. They since unfollowed me. It’s not a numbers game. It’s about communicating with people.
