Top 10 Tweets | Social Media Blog

Close your eyes and imagine a world where you can instantly view the most informative / inspiring tweets from a Twitter account in your field of interest on a monthly basis. Okay, now open your eyes and imagine no more…!!!

Today, I pay homage, once again, to the tweeps I follow for gracing me with some of the best tweets on this thing we call Twitter.

You’re my greatest source of information about social media and you mean way more to me than the vast majority of my Facebook friends! Here are your most awesome tweets:

1.@kikolani How To Stay Up To Date With Every Piece Of Info In Your Industry http://tribr.it/fe512y via @LiveUrLove [Advanced Tips Inside!]. Monitoring your brand is important, so you can be where the conversations are about your brand / company and then engage people who interact / talk about your brand.

This helps shapes the way people view your brand identify. This link gives you tips on the most effective ways to do just that, but monitoring your brand is just the start…

2. @MariSmith 22 Social Media Alerts Your Business Should Be Using  http://bit.ly/orHMNF by @AdamHoldenBache (ht @jaybaer) [LIKE!!]. This post blends well with the aforementioned post.

Once you discover how to monitor for keywords, this post will set you up on WHAT to monitor, such as names of key employees, common name misspellings, industry terms and more.

3. @SpinSucks New post: White House Creates Crowdsourcing Site http://bit.ly/n3f0BW. A new crowdsourcing site from the US government allow citizens to exercise their first Amendment right to petition the government directly in a way made possible thanks to social media.

This is changing the political landscape and the discribution of power, which is skewed increasingly towards the people. This is part of a larger initiative that has seen the political world be influenced my social media on a fundamental level.

4. @RonaldYau What Stress Actually Does to You and What You Can Do About It http://lifehac.kr/o22dQg. Okay, this is a bit of a long read, if reading the hole article is stressing your out, breeze through to the juicy bit on what you can do about stress.

Nothing mind-blowing here, but it reinforces / reminds us what we already know, so just relax. :0)

5. @danmartell 15 Things Worth Knowing About Coffee http://awe.sm/5W7py. #interesting #infographic. 112 million people in the US alone drink coffee every day. Canadians enjoy their fair share too. What do we really know about coffee.

This article gives you a chance to brush up on your coffee IQ and strike up a conversation the next time your are waiting for your next jolt of java at your favorite coffee joint, mine being JJ Bean–my home away from home = just shy of achieving major status. :0)

6. @cspenn #the5: Gamechanger time again. Google Analytics is going realtime: http://bit.ly/nE43ls. Google peeps know that to effectively keep up with the ever changing nature of the web that their improved Google Analytics Real-Time will do just that.

7.  @GuyKawasaki Surfer saves great white shark http://bit.ly/oFj24H. Is this about social media? No. Do you read about something like this everyday? I think it’s noteworthy. The video says it all. Enjoy!

8. @Gizmodo The new Facebook, reviewed http://t.co/z3EVs6fp. Timeline is incredible–from birth (no, really?) to breakups, college graduation, marriage(s)–you get the idea. What scares me if that you get the timeline whether you want it are not. Ready to bail? Does the idea of adding to the timeline to fill in the gaps with information like the year your were potty trained. That’s up to you.

9. @SocialMouths How Different Generations Consume Media [Infographic] – @socialmouths http://ow.ly/6JIe0. You get a visual representation of how generations use different kinds of content at different times of the day. For example, From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gen Xers spend 40% of their time accessing online news and information. It gives you an idea who to target when and how to reach this market.

10. @PRNewser Cultures are all different on social media too | LEWIS PR  http://mbist.ro/mVifQn via @lewisprus Really just a fascinating article, meant to read top to bottom that makes the link between historic culture and how this effects the way people choose to use social media. Some of its noted as being a respect, but I respect the effort and hope to see more concrete studies in the future. Great to get the ball rolling. Sip it, don’t shoot it!

Thank you for introducing me to hundreds of different valuable blog posts / articles.

What are some killer tweets from those you follow? I love hearing from my readers! I’m hoping and wishing…

    Weird. I JUST got the pingback on this…and then I saw the tweet and thought, “Huh. I haven’t written that in ages.” That’s, um, because this is a year old. Sorry for my looooong delay! And thank you for the mention.
