Meeting Old Friends for the First Time

On my way up to Think Visibility, I spied the following Tweet from Dan Harrison, a Twitter friend I was hoping to meet for the first time (despite the fact that we were both travelling up to Leeds from the south of England):

“Getting excited about #thinkvis this weekend. Meeting lots of old friends for the first time. :)”

This really resonated with me, as it’s how I’ve felt about every event that I have thus far attended in the search marketing arena.

Twitter – a place where real communities form

It’s been ages since I posted a blog here. I’ve still been writing as much as possible for Vertical Leap’s search marketing blog, but spare time has been a cherished occasion over the last few months – there has been a hell of a lot going on lately.

I’d had ideas of blogs to post here, but not actually started writing anything – there will be more to come in the future.

But events yesterday have motivated me to get something moving, so I decided to focus on yesterdays events a bit for something to write about.

Twitter is a place where communities form – I’m sure this applies to other social media sites, quite likely forums and blogs too, but I’ve seen evidence of a really strong community bond over the past 24 hours.

How do you get people to like you on Twitter?

I’m afraid that this blog isn’t really going to answer this question, but I was intrigued whilst at BrightonSEO yesterday when I was asked “how do you get people to like you on Twitter?”

I don’t consider myself to be a social media expert, although I do like being social – I like to talk to people, find out interesting or fun titbits of information about peoples lives, share useful knowledge between people for the betterment of all of them

I also don’t think that I am exactly one of the most famous tweeters in the world, or all that widely known/liked just yet – whilst it is a terrible measure, I have only just gone past 700 twitter followers, and growth in that respect has been dwindling a little bit of late.
