#lateraltwits 25 Twitter as a forum for recommendations

While it is true that Twitter not to compete with Foursquare, every day has become an interesting forum for recommendations.

No excessive differences with classical forums, since placing a hashtag is very easy to follow forum. If you want to know if a restaurant is interesting, or a play or a book, The procedure is very simple:

Someone who has read Expertología Can you recommend me? #expertologia

The hashtag is key, because otherwise we would be difficult to follow the thread of the conversation. Do the test with what you believe appropriate, a movie, a record store, a fashion brand, a supermarket, PC, smartphone…

#lateraltwits 22 Twitter as an open book

This week we attended two news “bomb” showing that Twitter It's really like an open book.

On the one hand Mr. David Bisbal He goofed up the bottom with a tweet regret that in Egypt the pyramids did not have visitors these days. Of course, with which it is falling in Egypt, so banal a comment earned him thousands of comments and criticisms. Obviously, I had to remove the Tweet. literally he said “You have never seen the pyramids of Egypt so little traffic, hopefully soon to end the revolt”.

On the other hand, the player F.C. Barcelona Gerard Piqué He wanted to break the tension generated by various means offering up to 150,000 € for a photograph of the player with the singer Shakira. What he did was hang himself photo on Twitter. In addition to ending “reward”, photo caused a huge virality due to the presence of an unknown man with a plaid shirt. If you want more details, Look at the hashtag #eldeloscuadros.

This is one of the advantages and disadvantages of Twitter. Being an open book, our tweets have to be well thought out, because on one side you can see them all twittero and on the other you expose yourself to a wild virality. In Twitter is not worth to say what you think, you have to think what you say; if not, So ask Bisbal.

#lateraltwits 21 Twitter como teaser

We've moved in the advertising environment know magic teaser. Do you remember those campaigns with powerful messages that do not sign anyone? That's a teaser (pronúnciese Tiser).It is also known as the unknown campaign.

It is an advance of a campaign, a release, an event. Its main function is to create notoriety and expectation around the event and cause the audience is “watchful eye” what might happen that day.

Twitter is an ideal medium for such campaigns. It is recommended to create a “hashtag” not overly unveil the content of the action. Just a few weeks ago from Twitter @soymimarca, We create a teaser campaign to heat engines which would be opening SOYMIMARCA VALENCIA, which it was finally 17 from January. I show the sequence of tweets of the week prior to launch, which they generated much excitement and more than one DM (direct message) wondering what the hell tramábamos.

#lateraltwits 05 Twitter as a public forum

In the series “LateralTwits” We have already discussed Twitter as a communication medium, Twitter as a platform for dialogue, Twitter as a means of information and Twitter as a means of contact.

Today the approach we do to Twitter as a public forum.

Twitter is becoming a great forum. Possibly never will replace the thematic forums that are on the network, but being a single medium is easy for someone with a good number of “followers” (followers) lanze a question, and also it is easy to get answers.

You can do the test. With questions as diverse as:

  • Does anyone know the name of the Secretary of State for Sport?
  • Any recommendation theater in Madrid in early 2011?
  • Is there any university that addresses personal brand studies?
  • Can someone pass me a link about using social bookmarking?
  • Does anyone know if there's football league this weekend?

And all you can think. Surely you shall answer, and in many cases it will be better than offering a seeker, as they often also involved the subjective component (theatrical recommendation, for example).

If you want the answers are not lost on Twitter, you can always create a hashtag, tags Twitter, to follow the subject more easily. For example:

Does anyone recommend me a software for backup? #softcopy

I think we have a utility over Twitter, very practical, do not forget to follow the series, which has a total of 27 posts with different utilities.

I take this opportunity to wish you the best for 2011… HAPPY NEW YEAR!
