Look – we all know there’s way too much repetitive noise drowning out the useful signal on Twitter.
Let’s slice it in half (+18% bonus!) with one fell swoop:
1. Social media is changing the world! >It sure is.
2. People want to be part of the conversation! >Yes, they do indeed.
3. It’s all about transparency and authenticity! >Good. Let’s do that.
4. Traditional (marketers/media people/grandmas/teens) don’t get it. >OK. So we have work to do.
5. Bacon, chocolate, and coffee are good. Karaoke is fun. Air travel, however, rots. >Check.
6. (fill-in-the-blank) is dead. >Well, if it’s not yet, it will be.
7. Guy Kawasaki is not a virtuous user of Twitter. Yes, he is. >OK, opinions will differ.
8. RT RT RT RT RT RT The Gulf of Mexico is on fire!! >Yes, we know. That news is a few RT cycles old now.
9. My Twitter horoscope today says… >No-one cares.
10. Get more blog traffic with useless Top 10 lists peppered with dubious statistics and lying linkbait >Thanks for that.
