Top Ten Things To Know About Twitter

twitter

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know that I am a huge user and fan of Twitter. I compiled a list for friend and former Welcome! guest Mark Farmer. Here is that list:

  1. Twitter is an open and accessible public network. Users can search for content that is meaningful to them and follow users that provide this content. At any time on almost any connected device.
  2. People follow three distinct types of people: those that they know, people they want to know, and people that are in the know.

#FollowFriday: Mark Farmer

Every Friday I am going to highlight someone who I think is worthy of “following”. In the spirit of social media and specifically Twitter, I’m dubbing this #FollowFriday.

My inaugural “guest” is none other than Social Media Cafe TO co-founder and digital strategist Mark Farmer. I met Mark a few years ago when he was helping the Royal Ontario Museum navigate the social media waters. Today he is doing the same for my alma mater, York University.

In my opinion, Mark is one of Canada’s brightest minds in digital. He is also very humble: If there is a problem he’s having he’s not afraid to go onto Facebook and ask for guidance.

Here’s a conversation Mark and I had recently. I hope you enjoy it.
