My Twitter Experience

Today’s post is about Twitter. I recently created a Twitter account as apart of one of the Journalism classes I am taking to make a brand of myself. I must say, I am upset that I didn’t join sooner because I have really enjoyed starting and joining in on conversations about what I am interested in and it is such a delight every time I get a notification from Twitter saying someone I have never met is now following me.

When I first opened my Twitter account I thought I would start by following thought leaders that tweets would be useful towards my blog and what I would like to post in the future. I started following some of my favorite authors, some magazines or websites having to do with writing or reading,  and fellow bloggers who are also blogging about similar topics as I am.

I have tweeted out towards 4 different people and organizations, but unfortunately haven’t had any tweets back or retweets. This is not a discouragement to me, it just makes twitter that much more thriving for me.

Even though I never heard a reply back from these specific people, I have had several awesome (to me) experiences on twitter. I think it is once a week that I gain a new follower that is an author, a blogger, or an organization having to do with writing or reading, and it totally makes my day every time it happens. I have had a few people @ me in their tweets talking about the same things I am, people I don’t even know. I realize this is the whole point of Twitter, but I am new to this so you have to bare with me.

This person has an online magazine and he put my first blog post as his daily top stories tweet. I was very new to Twitter when this happened so I was astonished.

This person included me in a Follow Friday tweet (which took me forever to figure out what the #ff meant) and I gained a few followers through this.

As you may have gathered, I am now a Twitter addict and get a huge thrill every time I see the twitter bird symbol telling me I have a new follower. Hopefully Twitter will continue to help me create my personal brand and will help me gain a bigger audience.

Until next time.
