    How to Create a Tweetstorm?
    How to Create a Tweetstorm?Twitter, recently, recognized Tweetstorm as an official feature of the app. Given, the recent update of including 280 characters instead of the precious 140, Twitter showed its users that it wants them to have enough space to express themselves,...

    #4 My gut reaction to tweetstorms was a thread or a conversation, but it will be interesting to see examples of tweetstorms being used as effective form of social selling. It is has been so long since I have been to Twitter that this kind of media convention is new to me, to date the only threaded tweets I have seen were based on a threaded conversation. I am sure it can be used for selling but like personal brand, it requires more thought, patience and skill to be effective.

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit " a tweetstorm is not a function of selling" I think it can be adapted to selling. Like a TV commercial is a number of shots. Tweetstorm can deliver info about a product bit by bit/ byte by byte for easy digestion of the suggestion

    Man, I am counting in years know since I last visted Twitter - that was due to me finding beBee more convenient for my pathways, but beBee has ceased to link short links to hives and I can only direct such links to my followers only. I am waiting to see what the updated version of beBee provides and that will determine whether Twitter will be a part of my pathway. Tweetstorms are a great threading tool but I am not as invested in conversation, as it is thoughts that create pathways for my own process.

    It used to be a social media entry like this would be filed in my Orange hive but a tweetstorm is not a function of selling. For sure "Social Media" is a sellers concept but "Conversation" is something I have now determined to be "Social" but not "Social Media". Personal Branding - which is a sellers concept can still flow into my Orange Hive but because so many personal brand efforts often make little sense in a seller sense, I treat those aspects of personal brand as conversation, so this pathway now has changed route and is beginning to flow into my Cyan hive.

    That is the basis of my own learning pathways online. Twitter could still feature as a convenient form of pathway but it is my participation on beBee and recently a resurgence towards LinkedIn that keeps me away from Twitter, never mind Tweet Storming.

    #9 Exactly, @Wayne Yoshida!!! That's why we created web push functionality. The System will send them when it needs to hear from you, and every day afterward if it's still waiting.

    We also implemented the same thing so that we send push notifications on your behalf, to people who subscribe to your notifications. This function is very much like our email marketing modules, but with only one send trigger. . . new content in a feed.

    Ex: If people subscribe to your LinkedIn Articles feed, they will get a web push notification whenever the System finds a new LinkedIn article. The sign-up links are under the Functions menu tab - > Web Pushes.

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian - - Several things popped into my head as I read this.

    1) Arg. Your steak and ribs place **upgraded** the toilets to "zero water use" units.

    2) If something is broken, something should indicate so, or else the user won't know something's stuck. (A never ending DO loop?)

    3) I am guilty of this auto-flush thinking. Human monitoring is still needed no matter how much automation is in place.

    So, I am looking forward to getting a kick in the butt when something is needed.

    Thanks.

    06/12/2017 #4 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #3 Do you need Twitter. The answer is why not? The account is free. If you are going to write here, get one, for sure.

    Perhaps a better question is, "Should I get serious about Twitter?"

    That one depends. Twitter is a great promotional tool. It also has a very powerful programming interface. There are plenty of software/tools to help you do it right. (Cough, Cough, https://www.myTweetPack.com) AND take the strain off you and put it on servers where it belongs.

    Do you have stuff to promote? (Yes, your posts) Might you have more in the future? (Probably more posts, maybe a book, maybe consulting gigs, who knows?)

    Basically, get a Twitter account, it can't hurt. If you have stuff to promote, get a tool and promote yourself through Twitter. Even if you think you won't need promotion for a while, start now.

    The best time to start is always a few years ago. The second best time is now.

    Yes, great title @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian and I can relate in that anything can trigger an epiphany. I still don't know shit about twitter, don't really understand the concept. My issue is that I'm so busy at the moment I'm already feeling "sensory and information overload" from my daily e-mails, LinkedIn feeds, (although LinkedIn is really falling down considering I don't get the majority of notifications about my followings and many of my followers don't get notifications regarding my activity), and here on beBee just trying to keep up with all the threads, responding to engaged interactions, reading all the people that I am following, as I said in my last post my "Bucket List" for reading is growing exponentially faster than I could ever hope to keep up with. And I do all this while I'm at work which is 10 to 12 hours a day. When I'm home for my week off I don't even open my computer, busy with family and enjoying life, so when I get back to work it's a couple of days of just getting caught up again. LMAO!!!
    I remember a long time ago, I was 18, working banquets and the Chef came by and asked,

    "How's it going Randy?"

    I answered with,

    "Oh Chef I'm very busy, too much work to do!"

    And he responded, (in a heavy Austrian accent)'

    "You could have worse problems..."

    Ever since then I've never complained about being busy, LMAO, but here we are back to my original conundrum;

    Do I really need twitter in my life? And how do I make room for it if I do?

    Any thoughts or suggestions Paul?

    #16 Ignoring emails and phone calls does not "send a message", although it does provide a basis for inferring something about the company or individual involved. We could, of course, argue this back and forth all day to no avail. So perhaps my following comment will send a "message" as you understand it ...

    #14 Actually, your perception of disagreement is mistaken. Both Jim and I have said (in this series and independently) dozens of times that true brands are not created but grow organically from presence, activities, and actions in business and the marketplace.

    I simply take issue with your statement that conveying no message is itself a message. Conveying no message, even in a marketing context, might indicate something about someone or something, but that is *not* a message. Just as being without a brand (created or organic) is not itself a brand, although it may enable us to infer something. For brands by definition actively engender expectations and raise images. Thank you for reading and commenting.

    I have this discussion about communication with old friends three or four times a week. If you started in communications before the Internet, you get what Phil and I are talking about. If you started in communications after Social Media came along, there is IMHO, and 80% chance that you don't get it. The 20% are those who were smart enough to go back to the basics and apply the fundamental logic to their digital efforts. These rest are too wrapped up in thinking that they are creating some sort of better mousetrap. The quest to become successful (outside of retail) in the digital world is time consuming in the extreme. At a certain point it can easily diminish any ROI factor to zero. This is a marketplace where supply vastly exceeds demand. Most people ahave a better chance at long term success at a blackjack table in Vegas. IMHO again.

    #7 @Don Philpott☘️, even granting the facts you cite, I still have to point out that a medium without a message is like an empty envelope that arrives in the post. Many firms elect to pay for the gathering of an audience, believing that gives them the best chance for conversions. And many digital marketers seek to play on that by measuring ROI in terms of click-throughs and subscribers. But the only truly meaningful metric for ROI is conversion to sales. And conversion still requires a message. Someone may pay heavily to be exposed on a YouTube channel that has 10,000,000 subscribers, but if they have nothing to say and convert no watchers to customers or even prospects, that expenditure has earned them zero return. Thanks, Don, for reading and bringing perspective to the conversation. Cheers!

    I'm not jumping into the main discussion topic, the pro/con element...agreed on many of the points of digital deviancy and deceit. But there is a core point - marketing follows the audience. The audience no longer reads "news" = ad revenue v cost for paper ads has scaled out of reach for most businesses, 1000 channels dilutes your TV marketing dollar considerably. Digital empowers the user (also the idiot and my friends in the fear factory). As @Phil Friedman says - "the medium"(is the message). I think Exhibit A is a relevant addition - (came from @John White, MBA 's feed) https://www.careermetis.com/podcast-a-day-in-the-life-of-chief-marketing-officer-barry-rabkin/ Barry gives a list of skills (30:15 - 32:30) Adwords, Social Media, SEO, writing, design, promotions, research, forecasting, collaborative skills ...so aside from key technical skills the domain is not different - it is still persuasive communication ...but now global, digital (meaning DTP) and visual - My daughter watches this https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD9PZYV5heAevh9vrsYmt1g 10 million "subscribers" rem. not viewers - the ad revenue/royalties alone is 200000 USD. I told the boss of Alison.com yesterday that this is his competition - not the message, the medium.

    #81 Thanks @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian for replying. I obviously wasn't clear on what I meant. That was to share more of others' articles on Twitter but to compete I should write more articles that people will like to share.

    I've decided against internal ranking of articles.

    Right now, there are only 5 votes separating first place from 32nd!

    An internal ranking would be meaningless.

    #77 So far, anyway, @Susan 🐝 Botello. The list changes pretty quickly. For example, @David B. Grinberg isn't going down without a fight, he just hopped back to first place edging past @Aleta Curry by one.

    The cut-off will be January 5th. That's when the final articles for the first edition will be set. Then, every second month starting March 2018 on there will be a new list on the 1st of that month.

    So, if all goes as planned, there will be a "beBee's Best" eZine every January, March, May, July, September, and November, always published on the 15th.

    You are welcome for the share, @Gert Scholtz. This post has valuable insights.

    As for the quote, as I have intimated many times in my travels as a psychologist, we (I) are not unique. Many times things people share can cause one to scratch their heads with understanding. What has been experienced by one has been experienced by many. We weave our way through solutions, and many times those solutions can emerge through the similar experiences of others. We are, essentially, a team. My goal in many of my posts is to cause folks to know more about themselves.

    In a quote attributed to Albert Einstein, it says "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Paul Rand, and it would appear you and Muna have figured this out. When you look at a great brand, it is apparent that great design isn't the result of an algorithm.

    I'm always in awe of those people who design great logos. Re-creating one is easy. Creating one is insanely difficult. When I think of Amazon's smiling arrow, it says a ton without actually saying anything.

    Once you see it, the logic is easy to follow. I guess that's the idea

    You sucked me in guys! I have no formal training in Logic so I have no way to give you some Latin phrase that 'splains where this little tete a tete left me. Seems to me that no matter what the writer intends it is the takeaway of the audience that matters. Too often, the story we want to tell or the point we want to make is not what is read, heard or absorbed. The best we can do is state the facts in simple direct language knowing that is the closest we can come to the output we are hoping for.

    Writing and posting on social media are more like teaching and mutual shaping of perception rather than activism against a very personal and often non-objective perception of BS. Even when we disagree, exchange of opinions brings us closer. What we need is all the authority with none of the fright and all the respect with none of resentment. We also need to change our behavior in order to ensure the best fit. Yes, we need very high quality of the written word, and that is certainly not exclusivity and intolerance. Quite contrary. Discussion and appreciation of others' attitudes and thoughts, including selectively and personally characterized BS. Each writer has the responsibility for designating which information should remain within articles. The need to write on social media may be something quite abstract or very intimate, but also a source of money, success and fame. The essence is in balance. After all, everyone chooses their motives and intentions. If someone believes that he writes for himself or in promotional purposes, it is his legitimate right. It is very easy for a writer to surrender in front of the pervasive and intoxicating magnetism of superficiality. Even then, everyone is personally responsible for creating content that one might characterize, with or without valid reason, as a BS, or in any other inappropriate way.

    #31 I think the important thing, @Lada 🏡 Prkic and @Randall Burns, is to keep in mind that one can be "philosophical" without being academic or pedantic. Although I was formally trained in philosophy and logic as both an undergraduate and a graduate student and taught philosophy and logic at university for several years, I today consider myself what I would call a "street philosopher". And certainly, I consider @Jim Murray to be one as well -- witness the language he uses regularly. :-)
    Phil Friedman
    01/12/2017 #32 Phil Friedman
    #29 I agree with you, @Wayne Yoshida, on this particular point. Just because a lot of "soft-headed" writing is published on Social Media doesn't mean that is all that should or could be published on it. When I first started on LinkedIn, I participated (and managed) several marine-industry professional groups, where many serious and valuable discussions took place and a lot of "hard" information was shared. Of course, those were moderated groups with membership by request and approval only. The problem is that many people work on the assumption that everything published on Social Media is a completely open forum where anyone can join to say anything they want, whether germane or not or outright BS. Cheers!

    #17 @Milos Djukic - that is some good food for thought. But I am not sure about the statement about serious writers - who focus is elsewhere. Isn't social media another outlet for one's writing, no matter how serious - or not serious the writer is?

    Do you think this may be a "generation" or "age" thing? Ie., "old writer" = not on social media; "young writer" = is on social media.

    "Old writer" = Not much experience
    "Young writer" = More experience

    #27 @Phil Friedman. I believe that we let our ideas be kicked around on a regular basis. It is our good fortune to have developed some facility for kicking back. And so it goes all the way to, hopefully, some form of common ground. I tend to be provocative with my headlines (which this one was) for the sake of capturing interest. Some digital market taught me that. LOL.
    Phil Friedman
    01/12/2017 #27 Phil Friedman
    #25 @Lada 🏡 Prkic, My comments here are not to discourage writers from publishing — even BS. My point is strictly to admonish readers (and other writers) not to accept and even compliment BS in the name in the false god of Constant Positivity. The philosophical approach is not to hold your tongue until your certain, but rather to understand that you can never be entirely so and that the search for truth is ever open and ongoing. So if you have an idea, throw it out there and let it be kicked around. In my experience, it is only the merchants of BS who cannot stand to be challenged, as has been demonstrated time and time again on beBee and LinkedIn. Cheers!

    01/12/2017 #26 Phil Friedman
    #20 This is one point on which we disagree, @Jim Murray. In my view, Social Media is a forum in which everyone gets to speak his or her mind. What we have to understand, though, is that the right to speak does NOT carry with it any obligation for people to listen. One has to fight for an audience. The problem is, as @Milos Djukic points out, that the ownersip and management of SM platforms are not content to allow what I call “Volkspublising” run its natural course, but insread seek to manipulate the results to maximize even mindless activity in the quest for activity and the profit that accretes to it. Cheers!

    Great writing as always. There is a lot to think about in your post. I can't say I agree with the statement that because of your formal education in Philosophy, you two might be less inclined to accept "fuzzy" thinking as “deep”. It's more related to common sense and intelligence as well.
    After reading all this, one has to ask themselves how to write again without thinking whether what's written worth posting or is BS. One may dig deep into their heart and soul, and pulls out the stuff that’s buried there, and still not be sure.
    I have to think deeply before going to write another post on beBee. :-)
    The one thing comforts me is that to get better at anything is to keep doing it. So is with writing, at least I hope.

    Canva is a great tool and fun to use. I also use PicMonkey and find it easy and fun to use. No doubt adding graphics and pizzaz to our posts will make them stand out.

    I looked him up, as an IT consultant publications like these make me curious. Looking to the different ways the thumbnails are used, yes, see the point. It does make you hang just a little longer. Great share, many thanks :O)

    This is a great article. It also is a great way to compare beBee to many other platforms. beBee is a platform that "Works" for me. Before I was using this site I was getting those "likes", yet no one every interacted with my articles, my links, or shared my information. When I joined beBee, the people here began to share, comment, and begin messages conversations with me. Great Change.

    So sorry Paul. No other word for those tactics other than fine print scam. Fair warning; Norton anti-virus did the same to me.

    Patrick, as I've said many times here and on LinkedIn, the Wiener and the Whopper, have 26 billion reasons not to give a shit about your dissatisfaction. But buck up, bud, they ripped off thousands of independent writers who contributed millions of dollars worth of content on the promise they would receive support for building their own individual networks of readers, then had that support ripped out from under them by LI's almost complete choking down of distribution and notifications. Cheers!

    The only thing worse than a woman's scorn is the the scorn of a disgruntled customer. I'd be pretty pissed if that happened to me.
