I joined Twitter a long time ago but thought very little of it, i just used it for gather. And very minimally at that. i just had it send a tweet out when i posted. But in the past few months i have really learned the power that twitter holds.
It isnt just some place to tell the world what you had for breakfast, or how many red cars you saw on the road. Twitter is actually a huge and useful program.
Think about it, you can "follow" people who have the same interests as you, and then send out a quick little "tweet" to tell them all something. or maybe...share a link, maybe push something you are selling...or maybe promote your gather content to those who are interested.
When i did my short stint at Social Writing i learned how to take twitter and use it as a powerful tool in promoting my content. And i have since been using it to promote my normal gather content, and it seems to bring in a lot of views! I Post my photos there and put tags along with it and those who like what it sounds like click the link. bringing me a few more views, and more importantly, getting my name as a photographer out there! I have also been using it to promote my blogs and my online referral links (only once a week or so...i don't want to be that guy...)
So, if you are already on twitter come follow me! i will be sure to follow back!
my name is....
Hope to hear from some of you.
