I Need Your Help with Twitter, Charlotte!

November 14th, 2013

Twitter_IPOIn just two months, it will be the five-year anniversary of the Charlotte SEO Meetup about Twitter.  I remember moderating that event with Roy Morejon, Lisa Hoffman, Jason Keath, and Lyell Petersen.  They seemed to be the most active Tweeters in Charlotte at the time.  It’s hard to believe that Twitter is now public and has been at the center of this huge thing that the entire world uses now called Social Media.

Like most of you, I’ve had my highs and lows with regard to social media, especially Twitter.  I’ve loved it and hated it.  I’ve started and stopped many times.  Most recently, I have barely used Twitter over the past year.  But I’m ready to jump back in with both feet!  I’m going to give it another shot, especially as I’ve felt awfully disconnected with the marketing community in Charlotte.

This may seem strange coming from someone who was the “Director of Training” for Social Fresh for two years.  I also wrote two posts on the Top 100 and Top 300 Twitter Users in Charlotte.  But that was 2008 and 2009.  I’ve been gone for a while.

So I have some questions…

For those of you that have stayed active on Twitter the past year or two, here’s some questions…

  1. What do you use most for Twitter?  Hootsuite?  Twitter.com?  What mobile app?
  2. What local Charlotte marketers are worth following and communicating with?
  3. What local Charlotte organizations are worth following and communicating with?
  4. What local Charlotte businesses are worth following and communicating with?

I have my short list of answers for each of these, but I’d love more input from you, seeing I’ve been a little disconnected lately.  Drop a comment below and/or TWEET ME.

I’m back, baby!

(Help me out a little, will ya?)
