Learnings• Twitter is a tool to empower the consumers and not to overpower them.• Twitter effect gets amplified when coupled with traditional media.• Fun, humor, satire, creativity are an essential part of engaging the twitter users.• Celebrities are strong tools to reach out to a wider Twitter base and lend credibility to the campaign.• Following your consumers back, retweeting their posts, replying promptly to their mentions, are hygiene practices and cannot be discounted.
More ways to use Twitter• Organize whom you follow with lists – have people segmented into different groups to have better focus e.g. customer, people in industry, social media teachers, people in professional organizations etc.• Stop following people who don’t tweet• Expand the twitter conversation to blog by embedding a tweet into a blog post
