I’m a Twitter Machine

I’ve been given the role of Chief Tweeter in our group assignment. Why? I don’t even know!! I have barely used Twitter before. But I think I am getting there. It is so amazing to see people starting to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. It’s like watching a baby take its first few steps 🙂

We currently have 8 followers on our twitter – and I we’ve had 26 likes on our Facebook page! I know that doesn’t seem like much right now, but as I’ve mentioned before TIME is so crucial with these things. It’s takes time to set it all up, develop a ‘voice’, and attract followers.

I’ve found a few Twitter Tips which I may start to employ as an overall strategy – did I mention I don’t use Twitter? :/ eek!

I’ve used some of these tips to spell out my own, pretty basic, Twitter Strategy:

– Post at LEAST once a day, but no more than 4
– Retweet about the same amount
– Use images
– Use less than 100 characters per tweet
– Use one or two hashtags per tweet
– Request retweets! (by spelling it out, or putting RT) – only where necessary

Well, here’s to hoping!



Documenting our progress so far.

It was with bleary eyes on a Thursday morn that my Integrated Media group combined forces to create the concept for ‘Zen for Ten’ – our major assignment task. Perhaps we could have come up with a more exciting idea, however when no one really has any creative ideas so early in the morning, occasionally you just have to go ahead with what you’ve got!

And voilá!


We have our three major social media accounts set up thus far. The Facebook page will be where it’s all at: it will link out to the actual event page, as well as the Instagram and Twitter accounts. We will fill these pages with meditation advice, inspirational quotes, information about the event, as well as ‘reposts’ from some of the people we choose to follow.

Already we have a few followers in these accounts just from liking and following other users in the social media network. We haven’t even posted any content yet! That is the next stage, however, and will be largely how we attract the attention of people to encourage them to get involved.

Stay tuned for further updates on the development of Zen for Ten.
