Improve Your Twitter Communication

Here is an excellent video to improve the way you communicate on Twitter.  In this video Chris Brogan, author of Trust Agents shares his advise on the value in what people are saying on Twitter and the business opportunities Social Media tools provide.  You will be compelled to change the way you engage on Twitter after watching this video!  Enjoy!


Summary of tips  provided by Chris Brogan:

1. Listen more.  Twitter has a great search tool. If you spend time listening to what people are saying on Twitter you can formulate an  opinion on what people are saying about a person, product, brand and your company.

2. Spend 12 times as much time talking about other people as you do yourself. Find other people’s good stuff and point it out to others. The more you talk about other people the more it is a gift to others and a way to build Respect, Reputation and Trust.

3. Use more time replying to people. When you respond to people during the day and the people around you will recognize that there is another person there and make people feel “seen”.  It is a magical difference!

4. “Do not go wherever the road may lead but go where there is no road and leave a trail.  The opportunity to innovate starts with doing something that hasn’t been done yet, not by looking for how everyone else is doing it.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
