Quick, simple to implement, and high-priority. If a person neglects to do these things, I very often overlook them. In fact, I once overlooked a good friend that I have know for years because he did not have a profile photo. He mentioned it at lunch one day, and I had to school him on the matter. 🙂
Who cares that you’re a father? Not me. I don’t want to know your religion either. Or that you like pink bunny rabbits. I want to see that you’re a lawyer. Lead with your job title. Then, if you must, add the rest.
Thanks for your comment. I tried to break the bio down to the most simple. Not everyone will agree- but hopefully this gives people a little guidance to get started. Come visit again please, I really appreciate the comment.
I can appreciate that you want to hear “lawyer” first, but as far as I am concerned that is the 4th most interesting part of me (maybe). Twitter is so much about the individuals that even though people have told me to put up a more professional picture, this is who I am- and I want people to know that family comes first for me. Some will be attracted by that- while others will be turned off.
Thanks for your comment though, I really am glad to hear other opinions.
Yeah, I don’t care what your picture looks like either.
Some people – who believe Twitter has a business value – have two accounts. One to tell everyone how much they love their kids and that they are married to the best little lady this side of the Rio Grande and another to deal with professional stuff.
I don’t think that personal professional content has to be separated and I don’t like the idea of maintaining two accounts but if you think it has business value your job title has to come first.
Really, don’t you think I know that you love your kids? That can be taken for granted. I’ll even assume that you love your wife. These are givens. It’s great to tell everyone but you don’t lead with them if you really think that Twitter might bring you enough moolah to pay for their education.
If you want to argue the point on The Recruiting Animal Show, .let me know. I’ll give you as much time as you need – if you’ve got something interesting to say, the entire show. http://www.recruitingshow.com
Most people should do a little Twitter training just so they know what to do and what NOT to do.
