Twittering again

By
Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty of Illinois

You know you're addicted to Twitter when you're checking it before you check your email.  Yes, that would be me, a social media addict sitting here in Elgin, IL.  I'm not sure if it is getting chunks of news that is so attractive to my short attention span or that when I post a link, I get 16 hits on it so I know people not only follow me, they like my links too!  This is far more rewarding that a simple blog.  I never really know if people are reading the blog unless they post a comment.

I've got 11 different Twitter apps now bookmarked and have found myself thinking up more as I go along.  I also admit to breaking down and purchasing a book on Twitter because I was completely overwhelmed by it when I started in late March 2009.  There is Twitter Analytics, Tweet my Rank, TweetFriends, Search by location, but I really enjoy Cligs, because when I post a link, I like to track how many people are reading the same stuff I find interesting. I now have over 800 followers in 8 weeks and have tripled my website traffic, so these are astounding numbers for me.  I even figured out how to post my Twitter rank on my website, and if I can do it, anyone can!

So far, my biggest weakness is following up on the direct messages from Twitter.  I get so busy posting links that I forget to respond to tweets from people!  And setting up a search to automatically find references to my ID really saved my sanity.  I like to personally thank my clients and trying to personally thank each of my 800+ followers proved tricky until I properly set up my autoresponder.  I can also unfollow anyone who unfollows me, pretty fair!    But, once you get involved in it, you really can get sucked in fast.  I am following a guy who posts 30+ tweets per day at least and he's the top Twitter out there.  Amazing how he manages to work and text at the same time!

Be careful with your balancing act, remember there is life after Twitter
