So my experiment with Twitter continues on, I have a slowly growing readership, but I keep wondering whether Twitter is useful information dissemination or even passing on points of view?
A couple of days ago I put out:
Spend less is best advice and it even fits into twitter nicely, you could make more money but spending less gives u more
Funnily enough (not really), no response from anyone which almost makes me want to see how far I can go before folks react?
You are all financial twits and wouldn’t be able to balance your cheque book with an accountant and a set of scales!
That might cause a furor, but then again, it most likely would simply be ignored. This one might cause a few responses:
A fool and their money are soon parted, and yes I am talking to you FOOL! #FoolMoney
No I shall not be doing this, but it does make me want to put out some kind of financial statement in twitter (in a single message), so I now offer all you budding Tweeters, so this is my offer:
- Leave a comment with your Tweet about finance (without links please) and it must be a single message (however you can leave more than 1 comment if you wish).
- If you have a Twitter handle leave it in the format @BigCajunMan
- I will compile a list of these tweets and next week I will post all (OK, I reserve the rights to not publish any I find too commercial or too crude (yeh, I worry about crude posts )), but if you have left your Twitter handle I will give you credit as well.
Have at it, prove to me that Twitter can be used for something more than being a good place to leave useful messages like:
LeBron James is a poopy head
I have gone to the store to buy tampons, Woot! Woot!
