Property Porn comes to Twitter

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Globrix

Well, I have been quiet haven't I? The good news is that my lack of blogging has not been because the real estate market in the UK is so bad that I've gone to cry under a rock, oh no. I've just been so flippin busy lately that blogging has taken a bit of a sidestep.

I have lots of news, so I'll just tell you what I'm particularly excited about - Twitter!

I have been addicted to Twitter for a long while now and although Twitter is a hit with US based real estate agents, your UK counterparts haven't flocked to the social networking site...yet. Well, in recent weeks Twitter has seen a huge increase in traffic in the UK. In fact, Twitter is now one of top 100 websites in the UK in terms of traffic numbers. A few UK agents are starting to creep on there and I have a real positive feeling that it will explode pretty soon.

With that in mind, we made some changes at Globrix on Friday to make the site as Twitter friendly as possible. We have the largest index of for sale and rental properties in the UK now, around one million (and for a small country like ours, that's a lot!) and now every property can be tweeted :)

Under each property listing on Globrix we have added a 'Twitter this property' button, like this...

So if a user finds a nice house, they can tweet it - simple! We don't need the Twitterers user details/password to make this work, so nobody needs to worry about any phishing scams, it's all very easy and hopefully people will find it useful.

I also launched a new Twitter account myself last week - @PropertyPorn.

Like sexy properties? Really kinky ones with swimming pools, helipads and tennis courts? You need to be following @PropertyPorn!

Each day we tweet some of the hottest, baddest, naughtiest UK properties for your viewing pleasure. WARNING - Some homes are seriously X Rated! One that I tweeted yesterday was on the market for £700,000,000. Just count those zeros ;-)

You can also follow me - @PoppyD and @Globrix.

And...just to prove my Twitter love...check out the necklace I bought yesterday!

Interesting...this is the second twitter post I've seen today...I had to stop and see what it was all about.  By the way, I'm working with some US based banks that are liquidating bank notes and REO's in Florida right now.  I know times are tough in the UK, but if you should have any investors interested in these vulture-like buys...let me know...or visit my site at www.ChrisThePro.com...thanks!

Haaaaa! I love it! What a swanky Twit ID (LMAO). You certainly know how to keep the SEO going girlfriend (LOL). Who wouldn't flock to a name like that? Too funny and welcome home, bay-bay. ;-)

Love the necklace and that must be some kind of property to have that many zeroes after it!  Take care and happy tweeting!

That is a pretty cool bit of jewelry, isn't it?

Should I be telling you to be careful with 'porn' in the name?  Oh dear, you could get unwanted attention.

Poppy!! it's good to see you again :-) thanks for the twitter blog, you reminded me I needed to join.

Melody, is porn bad? I had registered a name a long time ago (pornlet.com). never used it, thought it would make a good porn outlet website, oh well.
