LET’S MAKE TWITTER TALK!• See a friend on Twitter? Make and send avoice memo right from your phone to them• This is a new way to make a “phone call”to people you don‟t know well (or at all)• Pitch your idea to people who you thinkought to be interested in what you‟ve got• Twitter users are extroverted and readyto engage in new ways with new people• They might retweet your tape if they dig it
1) GET THEIR @USERNAMEAND PREPARE TO CALL THEM• If you have someone‟s @username already,you‟re all set… skip to the next slide.• To find someone‟s @username, you can usean app like Tweetbot to search for them. Also:http://mashable.com/2009/07/02/twitter-people/• If someone‟s tweeted, you have their@username right there in the tweet.• They don‟t have to follow you, nor you them.• They can always ignore your tweet, so try tostay relevant to their set of interests.
2) GET TINYVOX FROM THEAPP STORE / ANDROID MARKET• Open up TINYVOX on your phone• Enter any @username in the tape label
3) TAPE YOUR….MESSAGE• Touch the redRECORD button• Talk to your friend(happy birthday! :D)• Pause when you like• Add text to your tapew/ the “Type text” tool• Tape up to 30min:tweet „em a whole talk!
4) REVIEW IT• Play your tape andskip forward and back• Type up notes on thetape to give them text• Touch the big blueShare! button – it‟s off!• Enter your Twitterusername & passwordif you haven‟t already

BETTER THAN A PHONE CALL• You don‟t need their phone number• You won‟t be interrupting them with a call• If they just tweeted out, they‟re tuned andprobably awaiting interesting responses• You can talk up to 30 minutes, not 30sec• You can add as much text as you want too• Email them an MP3 attachment instead ifyou need 100% privacy (twitter is public)
