Bill Fischer refers to twitter as “the single most effective learning aid” that he can recommend, and I absolutely agree with that. The way it allows you to tap into open conversations, learn new things from smart people and share (and also sharpen) your thoughts is quite unique and very powerful.
However, getting started might be a bit tricky.
This here is a little collection of tipps and information to provide a bit more context around twitter and hopefully helps you to get started.
In 1998, writer Rick Polito summed up the plot of Wizard of Oz for a TV magazine using a bit of a different angle on the classic movie:
«Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first woman she meets, then teams up with three complete strangers to kill again.»
14 years later, that synopsis made it’s round on the web and went viral thanks to someone posting it on reddit in 2012. It became so popular that Polito thought it would “follow him to the grave“. He might actually be right – then the meme just came back on Twitter and is more popular than ever. Just that know everybody is contributing their own quirky synopses at the rate of more than 200’000 tweets per day.
Here are some of my favourites, curated for your pleasure:
