Twitter is just one more social media tool full of incessant chatter and 140-character musings that really serve no purpose other than to banter, pass time, and let the world know what flavor gum you are chewing. Right?
Nope! Well, yes in that there are tweets that are random or silly and yours truly has sent out the occasional fun tweet. Pet bloggers know the value of a tweet. Pet microbloggers capitalize the value of a tweet. BlogPaws knows this because we host the #BlogPawsChat twice a month on Tuesdays. If you've ever been to one of our chats or attend a #BlogPaws pawty, you've probably communicated with our Special Projects Manager, Kristin Dewey. Kristin can tell you a thing or two about monetizing and capitalizing on a Twitter #pawty. She's even written about it.
Did you know this Saturday, January 19th, we're having a 4-hour super fun #BlogPawty
on Twitter on January 19th, 2013 from 5-9pm EST! We'll be honoring
BlogPaws volunteers and our community – but all are welcome to mingle,
vie for prizes, and partake of the open (virtual) bar and hors
d'oeuvres. Tips not accepted! Our fabulous pawty staff is donating their
pay to animal charities. Here's what to do:
