Benefits of Twitter in Business -Published in Historic Architecture Daily

Listed under Blog, Marketing Posted Aug 30 2010

Thanks to architectural historian, Ellen Leslie, Paper.li and Twitter, we have our name in lights!!!!

What is this?

This newspaper is a compilation of the articles published today by the people whom Ellen Leslie, aka @wallstroker, follows on Twitter.

(I should point out that the real experts on historical architecture are off enjoying the Sunday of August Bank holiday – so I am the best they could get in at short notice.)

The auto-generated newspaper format is a really good use of Twitter.
I know, Twitter has been portrayed as a pointless alternative to FaceBook, but I think the newspaper is just one illustration of what a great platform tweeting can be.

If you aren’t up to speed with the concept of social media, it is simply an online version of how you network in the real world. As a starting point, I am a decorator, and I would like to meet other decorators to see what they are up to, what products they recommend. And there are experts in related fields – designers, and builders who also share good info via Twitter that I like to read. You can ask questions too, and trust me, there are some amazing experts out there who are only too willing to help.

And the business angle is just the tip of the iceberg, because as in real life, there is more to our existence than work and I have got to know a whole bunch of different people, scientists, dog-trainers, cyclists… living and learning, sharing info, taking the mickey… It is similar to a pub, I suppose!

And when I say “get to know” , some folks you gravitate towards and get to chat on the phone, others organise real life meetups / tweetups – the new “business breakfast… and of course, most folks you just banter to online and will never meet. But overall, Twitter is a very sociable pastime with real world benefits, and as you can probably guess, I am into it!

If it sounds sort of OK, I further explain the benefits of Twitter here. I can assure you, there is a lot more to it than mindless shorthand 140 character texting – lol rofl… 10 minutes twice a day and Twitter can take you places.

If you do get to sign up to Twitter (it is free) by all means follow me, @acmasterpainter who follows Ellen, the editor of Historic Architecture Daily who follows…

When you set up your own online newspaper like the one above, you will see that it pays to choose your Twitter friends wisely! I am sure a few of the spammer followers out there are publishing posts explaining how to strip a lot more than just wallpaper.

This post will now auto tweet itself and I expect a few people to read it.

We appreciate you taking the time to read this.

Please share it on Twitter, Facebook, or print it out for reference. Thanks.
