From a thoughtful –and useful– post by Tammy Erickson (@tammyerickson) on how to make Twitter fun for your followers:
- Don’t report banal details. Unless you’re observing a true breaking news event (and note: this term does not include what you or your child ate for lunch), skip it.
- Do interpret your experiences. How do they make you feel? What do they mean to you?
- Do share the oddities you observe. Look for things that seem unusual, out-of-place, surprising.
- Do share things you love – quotes, phrases, descriptions of events that brought joy to your day.
“Slow down, enjoy. Listen to the world’s music. Share the best of your experiences, but remember, 140 characters is a unique format — more like poetry or Haiku than news reporting.”
