I’m Good At Twitter
November 2, 2013
Apparently I’m “good at” Twitter.
Or so someone told me recently. My first reaction was, “Is that like being good at Play Doh?”
Several years ago a 3 year old I was babysitting told me I was “good at Play Doh.” I’m not really sure how you can be good or bad at Play Doh since the idea is simply to create something that didn’t exist before, but, if it’s a compliment, I’ll take it. I’d love to be able to put it on my resume but, sadly, it’s probably not relevant. What I would give for a job that valued Play Doh skillz!
Back to Twitter. It is becoming a recurring topic on this blog since I apparently spend a lot of time there. It even has its own tag now. Which is kind of scary to me but taxonomically (is that a word?) appropriate.
Being “good at Twitter” inherently implies that someone can also be “bad at” Twitter. Which I think is very true. I wrote a post about people who “don’t get” Twitter trying to explain it to them. So if some people are bad at it I suppose it is possible that I’m “good at” it. That said, no one is perfect and I did have a recent stumble.
So…what do you think? Are some people “better at” Twitter than others?
