We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Twitter is a challenging juggling act, especially when the number of your followers grows into the tens of thousands. I’m not quite there yet, but I pay close attention to my Twitter friends who are wildly successful.
Let’s take a closer look at five under-the-radar tweeps who are rocking social. We may not be able to emulate all of these traits but would be well-served to try.
Inspiring & Positive – Simon T. Bailey
I just read through Simon’s last 100 tweets, and every single tweet was inspiring and positive.
Simon is an author and while most of the tweets to Simon are complimenting him about a public speaking engagement or his book. Simon gracefully shifts the focus back to the other person and puts the spotlight on them. Nobody likes a narcissistic, spotlight-hogging person. Follow Simon’s lead and shine the spotlight on your followers.
Selfless – Amanda Hite
In my opinion Amanda is one of the coolest chicks on Twitter.
Amanda is selfless and passionately inspires others to be the change. As an advocate for No Kid Hungry, Amanda leverages the power of twitter to benefit share our strength which is a program that inspires, educates and drive social change. Find a cause you believe in and incorporate creating change into your social media message, tweeting for good is just plain sexy!
Fun – Jessica Northey
Jessica specializes in upbeat and fun.
A country girl with a huge heart, Jessica makes Twitter fun and carefree with quirky tweets that make you smile. With most of the twitter univesre revolving around business content it is refreshing to see what funny thing Jessica will tweet next. We all can’t be Jessica, but adding fun, humor and wit to your tweets makes you interesting.
Reliable Content – Daniel Newman
You can always count on Daniel’s tweets to be rich with reliable business and marketing content.
Dan understands the value of being a thought leader and knows how to share relevant and provoking information. If your goal is to position yourself as a thought leader, make sure you are a tough editor of what you share.
Engages & Reciprocates – Andrew Smith
We all have those friends who only show up when it benefits them, you know the rainy day friend . . . they suck!
You can always count on Andrew for a RT or a K+ Andrew occasionally sends out a friendly tweet and in general is one of my favorite twitter friends that I have yet to meet. Be the friend that everyone wants to meet, be generous with your compliments, engage more with your twitter connections and create friendships.
There is no reason to reinvent the wheel. I’m wise enough to mindfully observe great leaders and emulate their behaviors. I put my personal twist on Twitter and believe in surrounding myself with like-minded connectors, who lead with a purpose.
What Twitter advice can you share that will enhance others success?
