It is amazing to me how often we hear about Twitter now. If you watch any type of news program, talk show…somehow or somewhere at some point, they are going to tell you how to speak to them or give feedback on Twitter. Not just TV, but on the radio too!
No, I do not have paid radio in my car so I get to be blessed with all the commercials. I also get to hear all about connecting with someone on Twitter or Facebook. Hearing it on the radio is a little irritating because I am driving and if I really want the information, I just might have to write and drive. Heaven forbid texting or typing the information into my phone while driving. Maybe someone should tell Oprah to focus on the radio stations giving us information and “incenting” texting while driving…
Anyway…today I was walking past the television and the news was on. They were doing a piece about repairs in the city of Atlanta. The few seconds spoke about potholes and how to report potholes; they asked us to send pictures of them. Of course, they have a website with a form to fill out but that takes time….At the end of the story they gave a twitter address to send information about potholes @atlpothole. I personally LOVE the idea, sooo many people are not on Twitter…but for those of us that are…it will save us some time vs. filling out a form. I think it’s brilliant.
What impressed me is that a city thought it important enough to create a Twitter account to fix a problem and make it easy for us…BRAVO for you.
If you are a business, small business, solopreneur…WHY aren’t you on Twitter? In the past 24 hours I have spoken to “THREE” solopreneurs who aren’t on Twitter…Each one I encouraged them to join Twitter and tell us more about who they are.
You can believe…I will follow up with them and suggest they hire me to manage their Twitter account…after all that is one of my specialties!
