Is is merely one-upsmanship in the age of the Social Web?
Or is it a troubled cry for help?
You be the judge …
… music of mental pondering goes here …
I’M A TWIT. ACTUALLY, TWO TWITS
I have succumbed to Twitter. I am now a twit.
Worse. I am two twits.
I’m a Twit once at http://twitter.com/CopyDragon
(which is associated with this new website http://CopyDragon.com)
I’m a Twit Again at http://twitter.com/TraktorTopaz
(which is associated with my old website http://TraktorTopaz.com)
GETTING FANCY TO BOOT
I have customized the Twitter Profiles of both of them, as you will see, when you have a moment free to satisfy your curiosity and to take a look. The custom background is pretty easy. Several sites offer templates, meaning a kind of worked up graphic to which you tweak. It’s easy. Edit in your fave graphics program, upload, and Bob’s your Uncle, there it be.
On this website, and on the TraktorTopaz.com website for the Dread Pirate Topaz Twitter persona, I’ve added a ‘follow me’ twit-button into the navbar, and allocated a page with a widget to display recent twits, in the hope that you might find them useful or entertaining.
My big plan for these personas is to develop some twitter community for my music instrument and forum folks (Dread Pirate Topaz), and some twitter community for my Internet Marketing interests which includes hypnosis, our article spinner, my dating method, and other online projects (CopyDragon).
DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Short story inserted here: Many years ago I found out that I knew from nothing about how to dress and wear clothes. And I set out to learn. I was in major meeting-women mode, and highly motivated. I even had “my colors” done. (Yes, men. I’m not ashamed to admit it.) And I thought long and hard about the question of … “How do the clothes you wear affect the way people perceive you?”
Once I’d found the question, then many useful answers just tumbled out as obvious. But isn’t it often the case that, when you find the right question, most of the battle is won?
And *one* of my realizations is that, given human nature, everyone who meets you is going to quickly assign you to a stereotype. That’s what we do when we meet someone.
So it follows that, since they’re going to do that, the best way to grasp control of this process is to present them with a stereotype of your own choosing.
So what did *I* do?
