If you’re like so many people we know, you started your personal Twitter and Facebook accounts before you ever thought of doing the same for your business, and now you’re in quite a pickle because you’ve got clients/customers/colleagues mixed in there with birthday wishes from your Aunt Betty and pictures of you in your Kiss cover band outfit and All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose.
Have you looked at your Twitter feed and wondered “who the heck are these people, and why are they following me…wait a minute…why am I following them?”
Well, you’ve come to the right place today!
Every once in a while, you have to go into your Twitter account and do a little cleaning up. Just like the rooms in your house, your Twitter feed tends toward chaos, and somehow you wind up following someone who spams you to death, or someone who posts the most inane details of their existence every thirty nine seconds.
Last week we got all excited talking about Twitter and how to manage your followers to following ratio, when it dawned on us that we should probably shut our pie holes and let you get on with your day because we’re super considerate like that.
So, we saved our discussion on followers/following and Klout scores (which we’ll explain later for those of us who have yet to be initiated) for today since not only should you be cleaning out your Twitter feed, you sometimes need to keep yourself in check.
The other day I was riding my bike through the park when I noticed three gorgeous parrots sitting on top of a fence surrounding the playground. I was intrigued because you don’t see that kind of thing around here very often, so I took a quick detour to go check it out. On my way into the playground, one of the birds greeted me with a loud “HELLO!” from high atop the fence. I wasn’t expecting that (Duh! Parrots…talking…who knew?) and I admit it scared the heck out of me, but once I got over myself, I noticed how much attention these birds were attracting.
You’ve been reading for a while now and the time has come, GLAD WORKS friends, for us to get intimate.
We…we want to show you our recycling bin.
At GLAD WORKS, we like to tread as lightly as possible on the earth because in addition to being a bunch of kick butt designers and computer nerds, we’re also tree hugging hippies, dedicated to being as green as possible. So, we thought it might be fun to take a little break from our usual blog topics to give you a behind the scenes look at the sustainability practices we’ve implemented here at the GLAD WORKS studio.
