Are you a Follower?
“On Twitter we get excited if someone follows us. In real life we get really scared and run away.”
Isn’t it amazing how far we’ve come with social media even within just the past few years. From the initial creation of a few websites where people could connect, eventually spawned more intuitive systems such as twitter that now connect us in ways we never thought possible. Twitter has started a revolution in connecting people across classes, cultures and creeds. Ultimately a follow online could be all that it takes to open up a new online community.
Twitter is also heavily used by celebrities, television shows and the news media to connect their content directly to users as well as hear feedback from members of the general public. With interfaces like twitter our idols, our news and the consumer businesses that we use every day are much more accessible.
As annoying as it may be to have someone constantly looking over your shoulder and following you, on Twitter this type of mentality is encouraged and celebrated. Keeping up on tweets and sharing tweets is what helps to gain you more followers. As much as we might hate having real-life stalkers, online stalkers can make us feel good and appreciated for the content that we are posting.
Because of these feelings it seems as though the twitter pages with the most online “power” are that with the most followers and supporters. Still it is amazing just how much a single tweet can spread throughout the community. With just one good insight, you can start a trend and trends happen on twitter hourly if not daily. While it is advantageous to build a large following so that content that you post on twitter is seen by a large community, you would be surprised just how far good content can go even if you are starting with just a few followers on your twitter page.
Understanding the best strategies for Twitter is really important for your business, so you should it wisely. In case you need more help, feel free to give us a comment or contact us here.
