I am a social animal and that my friend is an understatement. I love to talk, hang out, and be social. Though, I am a tech geek (full stack web dev) — point being I am not an introvert.
I have been using Facebook for I think even before I found WordPress. That was a decade ago. And before that, there was MySpace — not forgetting about Orkut. Dude, I know what you’re thinking. Hold that thought.
Well, I registered on Twitter about seven years ago and for about three years, didn’t quite get what was it all about. I was tweeting here and there, whereas a lot of my tweets were on auto-pilot (note to self: bad move…).
It was only in 2013 that I read about how you should bring value to the Twitter to engage your audience — instead of sharing links. I thought, meh… it never works. Though I started to add more organic content and auto-pilot was almost disabled. Anyway, I did give it a try.
Two years later, Twitter is the best place for me to hang out. Two more years later, Twitter no recognizes me as a verified account.
I have made so many awesome friends here, throughout the WordPress and DevOps communities, and what not. I have found help, shared rants, hundreds of ugly gifs, and workflow hot tips.
I am not moving on from this platform anytime soon. I enjoy my stay there. I even find it to be very productive. You’ll be amazed by the power Twitter has over social platforms when it comes to building a better relationship with your audience.
