If you’ve never heard of Twitter…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 or you’re wondering what all the fuss is about…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 or you think it’s the ugliest thing on Earth…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 This article is especially for you :)

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 The other day I introduced a client to Twitter.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She’s not generation X or Y. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She’s actually more mature than that :)… But she has recently started managing her own wordpress website, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 has taken blogging in her stride and has even ventured onto Facebook. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 So I figured Twitter would be the next logical step…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I figured wrong. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She freaked!

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Not just a little bit. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She had, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 like, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 an allergic reaction. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Said things like: “I can’t bear the site of it! It doesn’t make any sense… And it’s so ugly! They are not even talking proper English… I’d rather die than have to use this!”

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 As our session came to a close, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I was starting to feel like you could scrape me off the floor with a fork. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She had trusted me. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She had paid me. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 And for that, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 she had just received an hour on the phone with me trying to introduce her to something which she hated with a passion. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Yuk!

So begins a quest for deeper understanding…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Ugly moments like that are often the catalyst for learning and transformation… for deepening understanding in both the mind and the soul.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Unbeknownst to each other, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 we both got off the phone and immediately conducted google searches on people who hate twitter. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I was fascinated to read that there are plenty of people who are in that boat, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and I started to dig into their reasons why. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 (Fascinating indeed, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 but I’ll save that for another article.)

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 She, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 on the other hand, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 felt relieved and justified that she wasn’t the only person having such an intense reaction to such a burgeoning trend.

So, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 what is Twitter?

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 If you haven’t explored Twitter yet, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 let me give you a very brief rundown.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Like Facebook, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 MySpace, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Ning and other social media sites, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Twitter is a place where you can hang out online.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 It’s a place where you can connect.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 As a business person, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 this is important because your business works when you connect with people who are longing for what you have to offer, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and who are willing to pay for the value you give.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Twitter reminds me a little of those networking meetings where you have just 30 seconds to introduce yourself. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Except what makes those meetings scary is that you only get to say it once. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 With twitter, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 you get “a million second chances” to briefly introduce yourself to the world.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 On Twitter, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 you have permission (in fact you are required) to keep each act of connection (each ‘tweet’) short and sweet. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Of course, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 this doesn’t mean that Twitter has to be shallow. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Each of these short interactions add up, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and can often lead to longer conversations by blog, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 email, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 telephone or even in person. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Over time, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 relationships can naturally deepen.

Does Twitter have a Soul?

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I reckon it does. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 If you want to find out for sure, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 try doing the Soul Business meditation from this earlier post with Twitter, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 instead of your business, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and let me know how you go.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 More importantly, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Twitter is a shared space that is inhabited by a huge number of good souls… real people who care. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Every minute of every day, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 there are people on Twitter who are reaching out  to each other in meaningful ways, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 making a little difference in each others lives.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Twitter is also inhabited by spammers, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 thoughtless autoresponders, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 annoying internet marketers (as opposed to the non-annoying kind), pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and a whole bunch of people that are just not your type.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Thankfully, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 you don’t have to hang out with them. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 You get to make your twitter experience entirely personal to you. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 You customize it. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 It’s as easy as clicking “follow” to connect with the people you are interested in, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and “unfollow” to stop connecting with the ones you are not.

Making a little difference in each others lives

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 There’s a lot more to say about Twitter…And the web is awash with opinions. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 But for this very brief introduction, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I would like to share with you a direct example of how a few “tweeps” (or “tweeple”, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 meaning “people on Twitter”)  made a difference in my life today.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 It started like this. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I was having a bad day, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 as I wrote in my tweet below (by the way, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 “OS” stands for “operating system”.)

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 He responded to my tweet…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 But you know, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 it helped. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 If you’ve ever been in an unreasonably bad mood, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 you know how important is to know that someone cares. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Feeling witnessed and cared about helped me move from feeling sorry for myself to thinking about what I was going to do about it

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I received this reply from Michael Doneman who runs an education and support system for ethical entrepreneurs and managers.  I met him on Twitter. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 He was introduced to me by someone else who I met on Twitter – Edward Harran who founded a blog about how social media can be used as a force for positive change. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Edward considers Michael to be a good friend and mentor. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Now I know why.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Michael’s words made me gasp. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 They were spot on. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Compassionate words that did wonders for my soul.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 They helped me to stop, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and to be with what I was feeling. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 In stopping, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I realised how much I was judging myself. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 In fact, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I was judging my bad mood… And that just made my mood worse!

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 When I took Michael’s 139 characters to heart, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00  I started to soften around my ‘bad mood, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 to make time for it, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 so I could discover what it was really about…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 And that has led me on a whole other process of discovery. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I’m glad I didn’t choose the chocolate. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Well, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 not just the chocolate, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 anyway. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 The bad mood turned out to be the tip of an iceberg, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 a rumbling volcano of issues that I haven’t been paying attention to over the last few weeks – even months.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Michael’s tweet didn’t free me from my bad mood altogether. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 But it made a little difference… and that made a big difference. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 It helped me get real about some stuff. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 And I’m still working on it.

Twitter for Business and…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 So, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 as you can see, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 Twitter is a place where real people… people with hearts and souls… can make meaningful connections.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I mentioned that Twitter is a quick and easy way to connect with people who might be interested in what your business has to offer.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 It’s also a useful way to:

  • Keep in touch with existing friends and colleagues. (I know many small business owners who avoid the isolation of working at home alone by keeping a desktop application, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 like tweetdeck, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 open so they can converse with trusted colleagues during their workday).
  • Stay abreast of the latest news in your field– in a grassroots, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 grapevine kinda way. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 (You can do this by following people in the know… For example, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 a sustainability consultant might follow 75+ Environmentalists on Twitter, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 or you can do this by following a relevant topic… For example, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 a psychologist might follow “depression”.)
  • Get help to solve a problem in your business. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 (For example, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 here’s a useful article on how to ask for help on twitter in a way that gets the problem solved.)
  • Meet potential collaborators, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 strategic alliances, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 joint venture partners… Or people who can help support or promote your business in some way.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 And that’s just a few examples to start.

Are you twitterphobic, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 or just wanting to keep your distance?

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I’m curious to hear what keeps you away, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 if you’re willing to share your comments below…

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 And don’t worry… I certainly won’t pressure you to use Twitter if you don’t want or need it.

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 On the other hand, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 maybe you do see the value of Twitter for your business and want to dive in. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I’m pleased to share that my client eventually did. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 If you’re in this boat, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 go to www.Twitter.com to sign up. Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 (Then feel free to follow me, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 send me a tweet, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 and get your Twitter experience started…)

Do you already use Twitter?

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 How do you use it? What works for you – and what do you get frustrated by? As you can see, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 I’ve only scratched the surface in this brief introduction… Why not share your Twitter wisdom with the other readers of this blog?

Pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 If you are on Twitter, pain relief > arava 20mg pills (generic) > 120 pills > $183.00 you can follow me here – and be sure to send me a message to say hi!

    Fantastic post Yollana. I’m glad our tweets yesterday helped to lift you out of your negativity and address the issues at the root of the problem.
    I’ve got all the time in the world of Eddie and Michael they’re great souls, so I wasn’t surprised at all to see their tweets too.
    When you’re back on your feet and nursing that little bub we’ll all have to get together for a coffee and a “soul session”. :)

    Take care,

    Mike Boyd

    Great post yollana.

    And yes I reckon Twitter does have soul. The universal soul. The rise of global consciousness. As Dalai Lama says, “We humans are all the same – we are in search of happiness and trying to avoid sufferring.” Twitter reminds me of that. Allows me to look beyond job titles, age, location, culture…..we are humans. When you think on that level, connection becomes easy.

  3. Trisha Cupra says:

    Twitter is great when you understand it. For me, it’s about learning a lot from all the great links that the people I follow post, and for making connections. Even today someone I just met on Twitter has expressed interest in becoming a client.

  4. i’m on twitter, facebook, and myspace, and ning, however rarely go there. I can’t work out how to find the time to use them….and currently twitter makes no sense to me….
    I will find the time and work them all out at some stage….i guess! So many other things to sort out first!

  5. yollana says:

    @Mike… Sweet. That sounds like a great idea :)

    @Eddie, I think you’re spot on that Twitter, and other social media sites, particularly address a human need for connection. Kind of a backlash to the processes of social isolation that started with industrialisation and the rise of the “nuclear family”.

    That reminds me that it’s also important that we make space for in-person communities, friends and family connections. Twitter hugs (has anyone coined the term twugs? That sounds bad…) would just not be the same.

    And talking about the Dalai Lama also reminds me that it’s important that we make time to connect with our own heart, spirit and soul. Like anything, Twitter can be used as a way to enhance or distract from the important things in life.

    @Trisha… I’m with you on learning a lot from great links posted by great people. And congratulations on having someone express interest in becoming a client. I’m curious about how your conversation went with them… The steps they took to get to know about what you offer and how Twitter was involved.

    @Fiona… As I was musing to Eddie above, Twitter is not the be-all and end-all. Like anything, it’s a personal journey to find the “right place” for it in your life and business. The key to working making social media useful and relevant to you is understanding how it works enough to know what you could do with it… Then clarifying your intention – why you want to do with it… Then you can work it about how much time you want to spend with it.

  6. The solecism far surpasses your intention [or do I presume?]: “I can’t bear the site of it.” Love it!

    Requests for “harder” information, like expert recommendations, references and technical advice also reveal the caring and giving nature of the Twitterverse.

    I posted yesterday to a Webmasterworld forum thread, where the tenor of most of the prior comments ran to “What a waste of time is Twitter!”

    “I have 360ish followers. Two of them, whom I also follow, live in my hometown. They’re serious foodies who are followed by a nationwide network of folks with like interests.

    I’m rarely in Atlanta; but circumstances lead me to spend an unscheduled night there. All I have with me by way of electronics is my (distinctly NOT “smart”) cell phone.

    I tweet:

    Can anyone recommend a Thai restaurant in #ATL? Please RT. TIA, Twitterverse!

    Inside of 20 minutes I have a dozen responses, some unmediated from folks who monitor the Twitter stream for the #ATL hashtag (airport codes abbreviate locations for brevity), some relayed by my homies/foodies whose retweets have gotten the ear of their peers in Atlanta.

    Called “crowdsourcing,” methinks. Works *brilliantly!*”

    Thanks for a sweet post.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks so much for your comment. How embarrassing! I had to look up “solecism” on dictionary.com and then come back here and admit to you that it’s quite possible that I… um… paraphrased for my client there and her language was correct. Or that I remembered her words correctly and she really did say that.

    But I’m not sure… Oops!

    And I’m curious. Is it cannot vs can’t? What is actually wrong with that sentence?
