#thankfulfor Tweet trendPosted: November 17, 2012 | |
Are you on Twitter?
If you are anything like me, you probably don’t know the difference between a tweet and a trend. Several months ago, I asked a twenty-something to explain the Twitterworld to me. After three hours I still didn’t get it, and my tweet-free world remained unchanged.
Recently, however, a good friend encouraged me to join her on this social medium, and in my ongoing effort to remain relevant in the 2010s, I decided to give it a try. Signing up was a breeze. Then I tried looking for people to follow. Well, but for my previously mentioned friend, it doesn’t look like my posse has jumped into Twitterdom. Hey ladies, it is time to figure out what your kids already know.
Just sign-up here. You will be prompted to look for friends and interests to follow (don’t forget to follow me, listed as Alison Fauls). Then help me try to get a trend going.
You know how you hear Natalie Morales on the Today Show always mention what is trending online? With Thanksgiving only five days away, let’s get a trend going about what we are thankful for (I know that I shouldn’t be ending a sentence in a preposition, but it just doesn’t work otherwise). In the box on Twitter where you can add a Tweet, type in what you are thankful for and finish it with #thankfulfor. Then hit the blue Tweet button that shows up.
Can’t wait to see if we can get a positive trend going. How cool would it be to hear it mentioned on the Today Show? Listen to that little blue bird calling to you to take the challenge and get tweeting.
