Twitter – Random Acts Of Kindness

Posted on Mar 7 2013 - 3:52pm by Peter Millikin

Twitter Love
As a fan of social media I love it when people stand out from the crowd. That might be because they make me laugh, someones clever, or I just like a product or service. As a blogger I know I can help spread a message online so I always TRY and help these people who also take time to communicate with me.

I wanted to continue on from an article I wrote earlier about the Green Mop company. (Read HERE)

Going back to the tweet from @RedIncBrighton suggesting that I include the Green Mop company in my line up of great companies on my blog. I asked him why he suggested them!

green mop

Adam Huttly MD at Red-Inc said he’s interested in “all things green” and is totally committed to business ethics, and he could see Green Mop fitted in to the What Stationers way of thinking.

It actually raised the question that time and time again I find myself discussing with business leaders and managers about Twitter. Why do people follow so many people and how can this be of use?

For example:

If you have 15k followers and follow 10k people, how do you really keep abreast of activity within that feed, and why do people follow so many people that have no relevance or interest to you, your life or business? Again and again we say the same thing, is Twitter a numbers game or popularity contest or some sort of self fulfilment! In which case, where is the true value?

Yes breaking news hits twitter quicker than a meteor to earth; great benefit, and you can get your message out there, but be careful in higher ranks about what you say. But unless you’re Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga, generally most things come and go and no one takes much notice!

Many people especially those that have been using twitter from the beginning will agree that in the real world, quality is far better that quantity.

I love being able to manage the followers I have and very much enjoy reading their tweets so keep them coming PLEASE.
