I am definitely a ‘Tweet Geek’. I love Twitter for a number of reasons; it provides the most up-to-date news, often breaking it, it allows me to follow businesses, colleagues and friends, and last but not least, it has the power to amaze and inspire me!
As a journalist it is hard to admit that the likes of Twitter, and other social media channels, are playing a part in the downturn of newspapers, but I think it’s safe to say that people now log in to their Twitter feeds to get regular updates, instead of visiting news websites.
But, Twitter also has the ability to put something you wouldn’t ordinarily see, right under your nose…
Take yesterday, a fellow ‘Tweet-heart’ @Cosmic_Matty, tweeted that a hotel in Washington DC was offering a very special deal (at an eye-watering £47k!) for the inauguration of US President Barack Obama that included a personal Social Media Butler.
For those of you not in the know, this is someone who is on hand to tweet, Instagram and post to Facebook your every move.
Wow. Yet again social media baffles and amazes me.
But then again, isn’t this just what every good social media guru, marketeer and PR person worth their salt is already doing behind the scenes of any given company?!
So, with that in mind, let’s all embrace our inner butler and tweet, post, blog and Instagram away to our heart’s delight!
I hope this inspires you.
P.S You can follow me on Twitter now.
