As I’m reading about AOL’s legendary acquisition and preparing for a night of dreams that replace the words “Huffington Post” with “College Magazine,” I also consider the other turn of events from today…although they didn’t seem to make it in Wall Street Journal.
The Bad: An innocent trip to the dentist today turned into discovering that my wisdom teeth will have to go. My first thought: When will it be best for College Magazine’s schedule for me to set a date for the surgery? I think I’ll feel better about the whole thing if I wait until we reach at least 100K monthly uniques.
The Great: Met up for coffee today with my friend, vitaminwater marketing manager and social media guru, Kevin Burke. As we caught up on CM and vw, the conversation quickly turned Twitterific. While most of Kevin’s insider knowledge remains top secret, I figured he wouldn’t mind if I leaked a few to my loyal readers (hi Mom!):
Twitterific Tip 1: Don’t fear the hashtag (#). It will get you everywhere.
Twitterific Tip 2: Just because you’re not friends with Tim Tebow, doesn’t mean you can’t @TimTebow him. Chances are slim, but if he re-tweets your Aaron Rodgers Superbowl Spotlight article, your tweet will be in the twitter feeds of 100K followers.
Twitterific Tip 3: Create a regular twitter routine. Stay tuned for CM’s “Non-Coffee-Fetching Internship of The Day” tweet starting tomorrow at 10am.
