Kuya Daniel Razon reveals secrets for a sensible Twitter post
Tweeting is like courting someone you love.
Recording at least 800 tweets per second in Giga Tweet tally, Twitter reported to have doubled its 10-billion count in just five months. Early this August, the microblogging site hit 20 billion tweets proving it is indeed one of the most used social network pages in the web. But out of these billion short messages, how many are really tweets and not just twits?
A tweeter and the only Filipino finalist in this year’s Shorty Awards for Best Journalist, Kuya Daniel Razon offers a few tips on how to make one’s 140-character message useful to all readers.
- Be unique. Tweeting is like courting someone you love. How will you make yourself unique so you will win her heart? Being unique should come with the purest intention of achieving your goal. Make your tweet unique so it will easily register in the minds of the readers.
- Be sensible. Your listeners or readers should get something useful from what you say or write. Before you utter or inscribe a word, take a moment and ask yourself, “Does it make any sense and will anyone benefit from it?”
- Make it presentable. Presentation is important. A delicious food is more enjoyable to eat if it is well-presented. There are a lot of ways on how you can share things to people.
