Many of you may not know that I’m on Twitter. I’ve been there for quite some time. And I tweet regularly. Here’s my latest tweet:
I haven’t posted about it here for the same reason I don’t post my LinkedIn profile: I am not fishing for followers (in Twitter), connections (in LinkedIn), or friends (in Facebook).
Not that I don’t want you to follow me, I would love for you to follow me 🙂 Especially if you are on Twitter (or those other networks). Interestingly enough, I share some things on Twitter that I would not share on this blog. It’s such a different platform, with such a different purpose, that it seems appropriate.
The funny thing is, I used to feel like I was cheating on you, my loyal blog reader, when I announced something on Twitter before I announced it on this blog :p How silly is that.
But I’m finally ready – if you want to follow me on Twitter, you can find me at http://www.twitter.com/jasonalba. You can click on that link to see what I tweet about. You may be surprised to find more silly, personal stuff there. That’s just the nature of Twitter.
Have I found business value out of Twitter? Absolutely.
Have I found people enhancing their personal brand on Twitter? Without a doubt.
Is Twitter for everyone? No way.
But it’s good for me. One more question…
Will there be a “I’m on Twitter — Now What???” book? I’m not saying 😉
