It was fun talking to Kevyn, and we got to meet Sheletta, too (who is just as funny in person as she sounds on the radio).
We talked about a few things:
- Twitter. Here are links to three great articles for beginners:
- Related to Twitter, we also talked about hashtags. Those look like this: #hashtags and are a way to classify or categorize your tweets. For example, here’s a search on #clockwork (tweets from co-workers at our day jobs) or #iranelection (tweets covering the current situation in Iran).
- We talked about the pros and cons of presenting while people are Twitter-ing
- Did you know that Twitter and Facebook could make you a better employee? We certainly know it makes us better friends.
- We talked about the Motrin Moms thing last year.
- Here’s the original ad on YouTube.
- The whole deal was started by super-powered Mom blogger, Jessica Gottlieb. Think about that: one woman on Twitter was able to start a movement and get a huge corporation to pull an ad. That’s power, baby!
