this twitting lark
Recently my employer asked for my Twitter address, to publish my tweets on their website. Other colleagues admitted to not tweeting, or suggested that our employer really wouldn’t want to publish their tweets. As wendy, I’ve dabbled but not really been drawn in.
What to do? Should I start using Twitter with my real ‘professional’ name. Luckily the name was available. There are only 2 of us with my real name and an online presence, the other person is a teenager in small town USA. I bagged our name on Twitter. But the big problems still haven’t been solved
- Should I twit? And how long should I spend twitting if I do?
- Who do I want to read my twits?
- Do I have to use a spell-check on all my tweets to avoid irritating those people who can’t see my conceptual wood because of my grammatical trees?
- What should I twit about?
- What do professional tweeters, who are published on their employers websites, do?
- What sort of ‘voice’ should I use? Directive? Cheeky? Subversive?
Do you think I’ll ignore all these tricky questions or other?
What have you done, and why’d you do it?
