Better #Twitter – take your passion and make it happen!

Do you enjoy finding out more about people on twitter?

I enjoy “studying” how people describe themselves on twitter.

You don’t have much space – so you need to choose your words wisely.

One of the things I love about twitter is connecting with like-minded people – even people on the other side of the world.

What often makes me want to connect with someone or follow them – is when they sound “human” and “enthusiastic” and “fun”.

I love it when serious professionals sound a bit more down-to-earth and human in their twitter profile and their tweets.

I’m usually too busy to read twitter in detail – but some things “slow me down” to want to engage more with certain people.

When something hooks my attention and encourages me to engage – I try to analyse WHY?

This morning, I noticed how engaging tweeters share what they are passionate about – with words such as:

wine tragic

big fan of country bakeries

Euro tragic

Wholefood baking nerd

radio junkie

big font obsessive

So I encourage you, ask yourself: does your twitter profile show enthusiasm for what you are passionate about?

Or is it just sound like a resume? Author, Speaker, VP, CEO, Founder?

Sure, you can include some info about what you do (as in your professional title) –

but as well as being what you do – you are also what you love.

Add a pinch of passion in your twitter profile.

Give like-minded people some common ground to engage with.

You’d be amazed at how the “little things” can be engaging.

This morning, I connected with someone purely because she reveals in her twitter profile that she is a “Chutney maker”.

Chutney has such positive connotations and associations with me. I’m a Queensland boy who grew up with kind and loving older relatives who would make their own chutney.

A dash of chutney adds flavour and “excitement”. So does revealing just a dash of what you are passionate about.

If you want to enjoy twitter more and connect with more like-minded people

I used to hate twitter (I thought it was too trivial) – until I read this great book about connecting with people over shared interests – sport etc. – and yes, even chutney.

Tao of Twitter

I’m not connected with the book or the author in anyway. I’m just letting you know in case you’d like to enjoy twitter even more.
