Beyond A Doubt

When I enrolled into Social Media Theory & Practice, I registered with an expectation of boosting my presence on all of my social media accounts. Going into this class I only had 129 followers, and part of that was because I was not that active on Twitter. I knew that I wasn’t getting a lot […]

Personal Influence Growth and Analysis/Top 10 Tweets

These last 90 days have provided a new way in thinking about generating content for social media. Primarily, authenticity is the most important. It’s not enough to post about walking to class. People go online to find distractions by entertaining or educating themselves is what I have learned. When strategically creating content I thought of this. My most influential post targeted this audience. Whenever I posted content outside of these parameters a number of impressions and engagement I received dwindled. Strategically thinking using my personality and my thoughts in my posts gave me optimal impressions and engagement and I will continue to use this and hashtags to grow my influence.

For this post, I made sure to tag MAC cosmetics and use a hashtag related to makeup artists. This post did not generate as many impressions as it could have. To generate more impressions and engagement using more hashtags related to cosmetics. This post was done when the news was trending which helped boost the post.

This post earned more impressions than I expected. The hashtag I used has a very large following when it comes to the subject of poverty. I could use a GIF to make this post better and create a larger impression.

This was to engage with someone I respected in my industry. She works for Cosmopolitan magazine and I thought the best way to engage her was to post something stylish and cute and it worked. I realized in engaging people you need to say something complimenting.

This was another high engagement and impression post. I used a trending hashtag and a GIF to drive the post. The hashtag was the most important thing about this post without this hashtag I do not think it would have been so successful.

I loved this tweet because it was not only about my birthday but it allowed me to create a GIF of myself. It used all the components of a great tweet. This post used 3 key things that led to a great impression and engagement success. It was visually strong in relation to the subject of the tweet.

Personal Influence Growth

My overall follower growth on Twitter increased but not as much as I had hoped. I gained 20 followers, but I think if I was more active I would’ve increased by a lot more. It went from 138 to 158 over the course of this semester. I think that’s because some days I didn’t tweet […]

I’ve been a Twitter user for about seven years. Goodness, that’s a long time. I  started using it to vent, literally vent about college life, boys and more boys. Originally my name was @newyork_6 or something like that;lame, I know. But my best friend came up with a better name that suited me, my voice and my […]
