Words like ‘Tweet,’ ‘Tweetup,’ ‘Tweeps,’ ‘Twiterati,’ ‘Twhirl,’ ‘Twitterberry,’ and most recently ‘Twibe,’ and ‘Twintern’ have been surfacing more and more frequently in business vocabulary.
The popularity of the online social media site Twitter is growing rapidly and whether you and your company have jumped on board or not, there are conversations taking place in the ‘Twitterworld’ every minute of the day, and people might be talking (good or bad) about your company on Twitter. It is a conversation you might want to join.
Haven’t had time to set up a Twitter account? Don’t know who to follow or what to even do once you are on there?
For this year’s BizTech Expo event at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park in West Allis, BizTimes Milwaukee has teamed up with Milwaukee-based Comet Branding to offer you help with Twitter.
Stop by the BizTimes Media Booth (#131) on Wednesday, April 29 from 2-5 p.m. and on Thursday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon for help setting up your Twitter account at the “Comet Branding Twitter Lounge.” Al Krueger, founder, right brain of Comet Branding, and Sara Meaney, Comet Branding partner, left brain; will help sign you up for an account, establish your ‘Twitter handle,’ take a picture for your profile, provide you with some ‘Twitter Tips,’ give you a list of the top people to ‘follow’ in the Milwaukee community, and even send out your first ‘Tweet,’ right from the Expo.
Sound confusing? Al and Sara can help you decipher some of the quirky Twitter jargon you hear so much about, and do it without needing a ‘Twictionary.’
Al will also air his weekly Comet Branding Internet Radio Show, which routinely features discussions on hot topics, people and issues related to business and the realm of branding, PR and social media, live from the BizTech Expo on Wednesday morning.
