Last year, many of us were looking at the presidential race and Trump’s use of Twitter while wondering – maybe this is what Twitter needs right now?
With social media it has become an all too familiar feeling when you hit the unfollow button. You feel the guilt of doing it and the person you were following finds out and starts wondering and asking what they have done wrong.
Just over a year ago I jumped on Snapchat along with many other influencers and brands at the time, why? Snapchat growth was seriously rocketing this time last year and the platform appeared to be on the verge of exploding. Anyone who followed me on Snapchat at the time (and thank you to all of you who did follow) will know that I rarely post any snaps at all now.
Are you finally thinking that now is the time to get on the social media train? Held off for some time but are thinking that you need to start taking advantage of the tools at your disposal? There are a lot of you out there in that boat, I can tell you that much for sure.
Twitter has a rocky relationship with developers. It is no big secret, in fact we have touched on the issue several times in the past and have gone into detail about what went wrong with developers and how.
It is no big secret at this stage, people struggle with Twitter. I haven’t talked about Twitter all that much recently because I care a lot less for the service now than I did at one point.
Let me start by saying this, despite all the hype and the soaring numbers of people signing up over the past week – I don’t think Mastodon is the answer, not at the moment anyway and I will get into more details about that later in this blog post.
One of the biggest mental challenges we face when we start a new blog is “who is going to actually read this?” You have got yourself fired up over the idea, you have a name, organised the domain and claimed social media accounts.
The tweets that come from Donald Trump’s Twitter account each day are an indication of just how much trouble social media can cause your personal brand or your business brand if you are not careful with it.
