Here’s the thing- Twitter has not yet become an active part of my day. I always forget to check it or even get on the website. Once I do get on my status usually states something along the lines of, (its only 11:00 a.m. and I need another cup of coffee). This of course is not going to provoke many replies from other twittering buddies.
In effort of trying another 48 hours of Twitter, I put more thought into my updates. For instance, this go around, unlike my first experience, I wrote statuses that would naturally ask for a reply. One of my updates I posted was about technology and how mind blowing the advances are with a really fascinating video attached. I got zero responses. I have not recieved much feedback and will probably just use twitter every now and then to follow well-known people I like, and read what kind of things they are doing. It surprises me that so many famous people in entertainment are now using twitter. I would not have expected this.
Overall, I would like to be able to use twitter without confusion. 🙂 I keep having problems sending messages to other people on Twitter. This is my only problem that I have dealt with on the website though.
After following some PR professionals on Twitter these are some of my recommended favorites:
- Lacie Smith- she graduated from GSU, and is now working for the American Cancer Society in Athens, Ga. I like to follow her on Twitter for her updates on events and facts that help fight cancer. http://twitter.com/lacie_d_
- Urkovia Andrews- a PR professor at our college. I have started following her to see if she has any interesting updates on her classes, because more than likely I will have her in the future. http://twitter.com/uandrews
- Mackenzie Whalen- PR Coordinator for Georgia Aquarium. I knew her when she went to school here at GSU, and look to her Twitter page for intersting PR facts or updates on public relations with her company. http://twitter.com/mackenziewhalen
