Why is twitter becoming a prominent social media player?

Today social media is not only about connecting: It is also about business.

For companies your opinions and reviews are worth a lot of money.

Social media platforms like Twitter are used by companies to reach customers in a more human way. By following your conversations companies are able to know what things they are doing right or what they have to improve to add value to their brand.

It is also the same case with celebrities. In case you didn’t know, they are also a brand. Their names are brands worth millions in endorsements or related products.

For my application to Charlie Sheen’s #TigerBlood Social Media Intern last week, I had the opportunity to upload a video in Youtube and discuss why Twitter is becoming a prominent social media player.

The time was limited and talking to the camera is not as easy as it looks; if you could say everything you think in two minutes… but it’s done.Now I am part of and Charlie Sheen’s publicity stunt.

Well, that’s like saying that I am connected to Mr Robert DeNiro because I worked for him in his Nobu 57–which I did– but that’s another story.

Anyway, it’s good publicity for them and some exposure for me.

That’s what I call a WINNING-WINNIG situation.

Blogging Readiness

Q: What makes blogging interesting? 

A: Content.

When you blog you probably will have to write, like or not. If you need to write, keep it interesting, but if that’s too hard, well, keep it simple!

Blogging is about telling stories: Figure out what you want to blog about.

But, if writing is what we are talking about, then perhaps it is a good idea to read what one of the best XX century writers, Kurt Vonnegut, has to say about the craft of writing short stories. Surely we all can apply one thing or two.

  1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
  2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
  3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
  4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.
  5. Start as close to the end as possible.
  6. Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
  7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
  8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To hell with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

So it goes.
