I do a lot of networking on Twitter. I manage nearly a dozen profiles for my various websites, apps and services. My main profile is @DotSauce which has just reached a following of 14,000. With this profile I am a curator, a domainer, a developer and a scout for all the most useful links related to social media, WordPress, startups and marketing.
Managing this content is not an easy task, but I have simplified it to a casual part of my daily routine, though I do take some days off. I’ve learned to filter out the noise and tune in to information that is relevant and valuable. The reward for curating all this content is a continually expanding reach. I am able to introduce new people to domain investing and web development all the time.
I don’t want to spoil the good thing I have going with the DotSauce profile. So, I am starting fresh with a personal account on @MarkUnfiltered.
Here are a few ideas and goals I have for getting this fresh Twitter profile in motion.
- Share my thoughts on music, movies, media, society and the internet
- Check-ins on location based services
- Contest entries
- Links to geeky, techy goodness
- Promote Electronic / Dubstep music
- Have some real conversations
- Connect with locals
- Follow selected interesting profiles
- Create new and unique Twitter lists
It should be an interesting journey re-discovering Twitter and sharing some of my alternative interests. I’m definitely looking forward to the possibility of actually reading a good portion of Tweets from a new stream.
You’re welcome to follow along @MarkUnfiltered if any of this sounds interesting to you.
How would you do it the second time around? Send me some advice.
