25 cents is not a lot of money, is it? What if I could get my Triberr reach of 25,702,526 each to send me a quarter? Heck, I would even be willing to pay postage if it would move this along. Now that would be cool……..PO Box 468 Lakeland, Fl 33802.
My question is, how come when I wake up in the morning and check my mentions in Hootsuite, this is when I find the bulk of my posts have been retweeted through Triberr? Wassup widat? Do I need to pony up to Dino and see if I can get a better time slot?
How in the world am I going to be the next big thing if my epic posts are being retweeted when the majority of the social world is sleeping?
Therefore, if you aren’t going to send me the quarter then I’m at least asking for the optimal time slot, as we all know analytics tells us 7:34 am is the optimal social sweet spot for sharing. I’m looking for maximum effect, not Chinese drip water torture.
Seriously, how hard can that be?
Is that your foot in your mouth?
Ok, I can still be a social media doofus.
Remember those 1,192 tribemates I mentioned? Well, that comprises 20 tribes. That’s a lot of blogs and posts to keep track of.
Trying to be the socially acceptable guy that I am and witty too, most times I will share my tribemates post without reading it just so I can get it out. I will look at the title and Triberr lets you see the first couple of sentences, so I try to play off that.
Dorman’s lazy; shocking, huh?
I know that can be a huge no-no as you never know what you might be pimping when you don’t know the content. I don’t retweet everyone of my tribemates and usually stick to my core of trusted and consistent friends. However, I see others outside of this circle retweeting me so I try to return the favor at times.
I have been burned a few times trying to be witty usually at the most inappropriate time, or being totally off topic with my witty comment attached, but man did I really get toasted this week.
First of all, due to the sheer volume, I don’t think many of my followers are eagerly anticipating my tweets just so they can read who I’m pimping. My guess is most tweets are pretty invisible. I love you guys and willing to share, but this is the reality of this little game.
Because I liked a particular title, I retweeted the post ‘You are what you think about all day long.‘ Being a guy, I should have known better but did not take the time to open it. So of course, one of my IRL female friends decided to read this and tweets back to me it was a little much for her.
Uh oh, maybe I better go read this.
Did I tell you I was trying to brand myself more through my blog?
Needless to say, I decided not to link this particular post because I need to let that sleeping dog lie at this point. It’s a good thing this is the internet though, otherwise everybody might be able to see it.
Probably none; if I have to read each and every post I retweet I would only be sending 2-3 out a day. I’m ok with the people I know so maybe I’ll stick to that for now. If you would prefer I stop the silliness or not retweet without reading your post please let me know and I will abide by your wishes. That much I can do.
It’s probably a good thing I’m charming, lovable and harmless, huh? You wouldn’t believe how many hall passes I get because of that. I really do have some redeeming qualities….really….
I might have been born Wednesday, but it wasn’t last Wednesday.
So, will you please retweet this at 7:34 am EST?
