You Are What You Tweet


“You are who your last dozen tweets say you are.”

Your content is a bumper sticker.

I tend to tweet about the following: Arsenal & US Soccer, creativity, art, inspirational quotes, new music, new technology, social media, with the occasional joke. That’s why Google Reader is such an indispensable tool: it helps me find the nuggets of information I’m interested in which I then broadcast to the world.

I typically mix aspirational tweets with my own original content: blog posts and Flickr/Instagram photos, and more recently, Vine videos.

Twitter is a reflection of your interests and what you think about all day.  It’s the identity you want to project to the world.


Sharing hugely impacts behavior. One of the main reasons I walk to and from work is so I can capture interesting content to add to this blog. It’s a way of saying, “Look where I am right now,” as Ricky Van Veen so eloquently puts it in the video below.

Social media is our public microphone. Which means you also have to take complete responsibility for what you share and say.  It’s fun, and a bit risky.
