You Might Be A Social Media Douchebag If… ~ 1st Edition ~

Real Estate Agent with Resident Realty FA.100079118

If you respond (pronounced "hijack") to a direct competitor's Tweet with an awkward sales pitch of your own, and then manage to reach only 1 account with your message... Your own... You might be a Social Media Douchebag!

No, correction, you ARE a Social Media Douchebag!

A few days ago I had this happen. I had a fellow Realtor in my town reply to one of my tweets.


I had tweeted a blog post about selling your home, this person then replied directly to me with a sales pitch about what an amazing real estate agent she is.

I can't imagine anybody wanting to have a Realtor tweet them about what an awesome agent they are, especially another Realtor.

Let me know your thoughts? I'd be curious to know what other agents think about this.

Kevin, some people just don't think or perhaps they're really that shallow.... I would probably call this one a social media douche-bag.
