Chris Brogan’s cool and scary #twitter style


Chris Brogan tweets a lot – 143K

and he has lots of followers – 284K

We can all learn lots from his tweetin’ style!

(He has tweeted lots and attracted lots more followers since I took the photo above!)

I can’t read all his tweets – but I study his style – and take note of which tweets attract my attention and motivate me to click on any links.

This morning this tweet caught my attention because of the writing style.

Chris Brogan ‏‪@chrisbrogan

5 is cool, 8 is scary. Which ones do you like? – ‪ 

The tweet caught my attention because:

1. it promised both cool AND scary.

2.I was curious to see what he was talking about – Chris is often suitably, intriguingly vague in his tweets (in a good, engaging way!)

3. When I analyse my main motivation – it was: I wanted to see what Chris found scary.

I’m so glad I clicked on the link.

Click on the link above in his tweet. I won’t ruin the surprise for you – and I encourage you to take just a moment to check it out.

Sure enough, 5 definitely is cool. I believe Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys used to do this – and I’d like to do it too.

And, yes 8 is scary – in an awesome way!

Chris inspires so many posts – the least I can do (as a good neighbour) is encourage you to follow his tweets and his website.

When you click on that link in his tweet – you’ll see why he is worth following and the type of  cool and scary stuff he shares!
