I am a Twitter God(ess) and So Can You.

Tara HuntThe 2nd panel on day one of the Twitter Conference (#140tc) was titled:  “I am a Twitter

iJustine

iJustine

God(ess) and So Can You.”  It featured Tara Hunt (@missrogue), ijustine and Dave Peck (@davepeck) – I think I figured out which one was the “god”.

The panel was entertaining and engaging (although left me wanting some more practical advise for us that are short of god-like status).  Highlight was @missrogue’s list of 40 remarkable tweets, drawn from her list of favorites found here.

There was some debate around automating functions within Twitter – auto-reply, scheduling tweets, etc.  Dave Peck has experimented with this, with mixed results.  Consensus seemed to be to tread carefully around automating communication or avoid altogether.  @missrogue: “Automating tweets is a loss of opportunity.”

My takeway (even if I don’t have 1/2 million followers) is that Twitter should be used to build relationships with conversations, not to spam.

I’m feeling tweety . . . more later.
