11:27 AM – We’re about to get started with Talking Twitter! I’ll be tweeting it at @ccplbusiness and blogging it here. And yes, Michael is going to post the presentation online & when he does, we’ll link to it here. 🙂
11:40 – Some good chat about Twitter even before we’ve started.
12:11 PM- Listen first, then speak. You have two ears and one mouth, so listen more than you speak.
12:12 – Be genuine with who you’re following & why you’re following them
12:29 – Lots of hashtag talk. And the URL shorteners, too. We’re talking about bit.ly because you can keep stats on how many people click it.
12:34 – Use url shorteners not just to shorten; use them to figure out what people are clicking on & responding to.
12:35 – Demographics of all soc media sites are the things that help determine which one your org should use.
1:05 – [How I figured out how to use Twitter? Go to twitterholic.com & search for the top twitterers. Look at their recent tweets & follow some of them. Also, I searched for a topic I’m interested in personally & just made friends! Finally, I went to a Social Media Club Charleston meeting that was about how the heck to use social media. That was really helpful! – @ccplbusiness]
