Round Table Discussion- Twitter

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Advantage

In my office about every other week we have a agent round table where agents of various degrees of experience talk about things that are coming up, difficulties they are having or just to talk about aspects of real estate that interest us.

 Last weeks round table was a lot of different discussions. But one discussion stuck out to me- one of my colleagues stated that she felt as if Twitter was on its way out and people do not want to hear if you are in the vegetable isle of the Heritage Harris Teeter. Where I agree that most people are not interested in the minuet details of were you go and what you do during the course of the day, Twitter does allow the user to communicate interesting facts to those that are following them. Such as, were a great investment property is, where to find a great pizza in Rolesville (Anzios) and advice on what to do when visiting Burlington NC. Recently I used Twitter to receive updates on a soccer tournament my daughter was in and I use twitter to get to know people in my community and I even search twitter for potential buyers and sellers moving to the area.  I even put out a Tweet looking for anyone looking to sell their home that had some detailed needs for my buyer.

 I respectfully disagree, Twitter will continue to grow and if used properly can be a way to open doors of communication and be a better ambassador of our communities.

Interesting. I am learning more and more about social media, but Twitter is still a big mystery to me.

Debbie, I have heard from other agents about the whole "Social Networking Thing" being on its way out the door.  I always think that these agents don't even realize what they are missing out on because of their attitute.  I don't want to hear the Tweet about the grocery store trip but on the other hand what if that person in the grocery store reads something about real estate while they are in the line waiting to pay for their groceries?  And it makes them call you?

I really haven't gotten into twitter yet.  I think I need a better understanding of that medium before I jump in.
