And, I'm not exactly new to this whole Twitter thing.
In fact I've been tweeting since February 22, 2008.
For those of you keeping track at home, that's FOUR YEARS, 6 months, 1 week, 9 hours, 7 minutes and 56 seconds (as of August 31, 2012 at 2:57 pm ET).
So imagine my complete and total
In part it read:
Twitter only allows 140 characters, inclusive of links and hashtags. Tweets need to be created to be punchy and direct, saying as much as possible in the shortest space. Every word matters, so articles like "a" and "the" should be skipped when possible. Think of it as a form of shorthand communication.
Also, hashtags need to be targeted based on what you are trying to get people to search for….
Alternatively, you can create your own hashtag to start a trended discussion - something that really speaks to what [the client] is trying to say and also sets them apart as the leader of the conversation and not just a small voice.
In all seriousness, this really makes me angry.
I'm OK with someone giving me CONSTRUCTIVE criticism - and I'll take that. But to think that she should give me "Twitter for Dummies" in an email is ludicrous.
I don't need someone to tell me how Twitter works. I've been doing it long enough (and well enough) to know what works and what doesn't. I didn't just start tweeting yesterday. I've been to enough social media conferences and read enough social media news (um, hi...DAILY) to know what I'm doing.
And with that, I'm going to go tweet about the #fullmoon and how it's making people #crazy.
