What Do I Twitter About?
My updates are all over the place, but will generally fall into one of three buckets.
- compliance, fraud, and securities. That’s my professional stuff. You can take a look at my compliance blog: Compliance Building.com
- Cycling and bike commuting. That’s coming from Boston Bike Commute . com
- Personal stuff like books, snowboarding and paddling. That’s coming from here.
You’re not going to get a consistent message. If that’s a problem, don’t follow me.
Do I Use Other Twitter Accounts?
I also use @ComplianceBuild in Twitter to automatically publish blog posts from Compliance Building into the Twitter stream. Twitter has become a powerful tool for searching on topics. I want to inject my blog posts into that pool of information. Otherwise, I rarely post anything except blog posts from that Twitter account.
Who am I?
You can read more about me on the About at Compliance Building or for a more personal side, the “About” page over at DougCornelius.com. To sum up my story, I am former lawyer at a big law firm, who worked in real estate finance, moved to knowledge management and now hold a job as Chief Compliance Officer at a real estate private equity firm based in Boston.
Will I follow You back?
Maybe. Are these true about your Twitter account?:
- Did you fail to upload a picture or avatar?
- Do you fail to put any information about yourself in your bio, location and website?
- Do you have more than two updates?
- Do you follow many more people than those that follow you?
- Do any of your recent updates make references to the need to achieve more followers?
- Are you going to send me an automatic message “thanks for the follow. . .”?
- Do you post updates only about your product or service?
- Are you a social media expert?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I am unlikely to follow you. From FOLLOW FAIL: The Top 10 Reasons I Will Not Follow You in Return on Twitter.
