Note: I find I never posted this, but it still looks relevant, so here goes!
I’ve been following quite a number of marketers and watching what they do and say. Thus far, while I have found a few good ideas in the actual tweets from each of them, I have found most of my best information via links that they post. I note that some people seem to think constantly posting links is bad Twitter karma, but I guess I haven’t quite gotten with the 140 character program. I like a link in there in case I want more of whatever was in the Tweet.
For those who might be interested, out of all the marketers I follow, I have gotten my best ideas from on person I follow–Zappos CEO. Several of his tweets last summer, followed by looking at his web site and what he does, caused me to rethink everything from business slogan to business plan. I rewrote both, along with a new company mission statement. I have only implemented a fraction of the ideas I picked up, but plan to have done so by next October. Note that he sells shoes and the business I’m developing is a publisher as I continue this little one person computer support business.
In any case, in keeping with my appreciation for good links, here’s what I really intended to post about. Jason Hiner has a post at Tech Republic, Techies: The top ten people you should follow on Twitter. He also has 20 also-rans, and a number of them are interesting as well.
Now if I could just get my incoming Twitter info better organized. Groups within TweetDeck help, but I think my grouping logic isn’t quite working yet.
