I used to be obsessed with how Twitter can help you to develop skills to cultivate a community.
Then I became fixated with people to follow on Twitter.
Next I morphed my interest into types of Tweets if you Twitter every day.
Now it is the quality of the conversation I am having with my Twitter community that absorbs me.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not doing it to see if I myself am mentioned. I am doing it to see whether my Twitters are part of a conversation with my community, that is
- are my Tweets being reTweeted?
- are individuals in my Twitter community addressing me publicly but directly with @replies?
- is my Twitter community answering questions that I ask?
Take a look now at my Twitter Search. I hope it is not just my face filling the page, that my own Tweets are interwoven with other people’s Tweets. Of course there’s a risk that it will all be me.
So I set myself a tough task. If my face begins to fill a whole page on the Twitter Search Feed with not another human being in sight, I feel under pressure. How can I shift the nature of my Tweets to ensure I am conversing with my Twitter community and not just broadcasting to it.
What happens when you put your Twitter profile name through Twitter Search? What is the quality of the conversation you are having with your Twitter community?
