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.

How Social Media Has Become the Battlefield for Recognizing #LymeDisease

More than 300,000 cases of Lyme disease will be diagnosed this year, but because many doctors aren’t well educated in recognizing it in its early stages, the number could be much higher. Luckily, awareness is spreading, thanks highly to social media. Here are some examples of what Twitter has to say about #LymeDisease.

We actually had a vaccine on the market for a few years, but its creators stopped making it because so few people requested it and it wasn’t making them enough money. Hopefully, with cases and awareness and demand on the rise, it will be improved and offered once again.

Many people don’t believe in climate change, but whatever your beliefs, the warmer and shorter the winters, the more ticks thrive. Ticks are notoriously stealthy, and it takes harsh conditions to kill them off. Additionally, they aren’t only spread by deer as many people believe, but are also carried by mice. The more mice survive the winter, they more ticks have warm bodies to stay attached to and feed on.

There’s much controversy over Lyme disease. The CDC says it’s treatable, but if it isn’t caught immediately, it can lead to permanent damage to the brain, heart, nervous system and more.

The “Spoon Theory” is a way of explaining to those without a chronic condition how much energy it takes to get through each day. It suggests that each person is given X amount of spoons each day, to spend however they choose. The amount of spoons you start with is determined by your health status. Certain activities cost more spoons than others, so essentially, it’s about knowing one’s limits and not wasting your energy on trivial or non-vital things.

Many celebrities, like Bella Hadid and Avril Lavigne have been spreading awareness of Lyme disease by being open about their battles with Lyme disease. In her recently released book, Kelly Osbourne slams such celebrities for trying to make the disease “trendy.”

Kelly Osbourne’s views are not shared or appreciated by many who have Lyme disease because they believe that celebrities sharing their battles are both inspirational and are using their platforms to raise awareness.
