5 Ways YOU can launch a Twitter stream remediation program

Twitter is most certainly one of the more interesting tools in social media. Small- terse messages of random interaction. My specific twitter network is just a little more eclectic than other social segments I frequent.

Twitter just like any social network continues to evolve to include an increasingly diverse set of media snacks for a growing cross section of the population. With the recent service/scale issues and exponential references on television, it is becoming increasing evident that the twitter stream is mainstream. Just as in any type of social network – you need to tend to the stream to maintain quality, conversational purity and value requirements.

5 Ways to Initiate a Stream Remediation Program

  1. Identify the maximum thread of velocity and prioritize it’s value. High velocity twitter-ers can rapidly obscure the conversation. Bye BBC!
  2. Contribute and interact to enable conversations. The size and shape of your Tweets significantly impacts the conversational velocity.
  3. Channel friction and boundary shear are givens – so add new folk and erode others out.
  4. Various conversations depths exist and the variability is driven by network depth. Engage people – not the just the network to identify YOUR thread of maximum value.
  5. Have a stream clean up day every now and again.

    Stream Clean-up Days are key. I think many of us who are trying to self-promote thinking reaching everyone in a spammy type of way is the way to go. I think those days are over, and it’s all about stronger connections that are ultimately taken a lot more seriously and lead to more actions, such as more serious recommendations to friends. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir…Wish I had the time to figure out what that graph and equation meant.
