I didn’t know I would be featured in a mini case study after my first day on Twitter. But Handshake 2.0, a B2B news site where I contribute articles, picked up on my first day and wrote about it here.
My first day was pretty interesting. Here’s how it came about.
Two nights ago I decided it was time to jump on Twitter when a big sports agency (Octagon) emailed me about a new site called Twackle, an aggregator of sports tweets. They wanted me to write about Twackle (at ARMCHAIR GOLF BLOG) and I thought, “It’s time for me to get on Twitter.”
So I did several things that got me rolling on Twitter:
1. I signed up.
3. I put a Twackle widget and my Twitter address and feed in my blog’s sidebar.
4. I began following many folks I know in the golf world (who, for the most part, returned the favor).
5. I mass emailed invitations to all the golf, marketing and other people in my various email accounts.
Attracting nearly 50 followers, I did have a pretty good first day on Twitter. It was fascinating to discover and experience the world of “tweets,” “follows” and more.
