Negative, Ghost Writer, The Pattern’s Full…

Ghost Writer

Ghost Writer

Last week, there was much hub-bub in the Twitterverse that some celebrities and other high-profile types did not write their own tweets but instead (gasp!) used…ghost writers.

My first thought was, “Well, d’uh!!”

My second thought was this cool joke.

Good night, folks! I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your servers.




I am running the Maryland Half Marathon on May 31, 2009 for the University of Maryland’s Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. Check out my donation page either by clicking on the cool running guy in the left column or by clicking here. Thank you very much.     

It’s the Conversation, Stupid…

Twitter (and blogs and other social media stuff) is about conversations and relationships. It’s not another megaphone to scream your spam direct marketing information about your products and services.

Biggby Bob (@BiggbyBob) gets it. Frank Ellison (@Comcast Cares) gets it.  Chris Brogan (@ChrisBrogan) gets it. Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) gets it. Zappos CEO Tony (@zappos) gets it. Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) gets it. Many, many others, too many to list here, get it.

To all of you self-proclaimed “SEO Experts” “Social Media Gurus” “Social Networking Ninjas” Be human. Be You. That’s what it’s all about.

It’s the conversation, stupid.

Chock Full O' Zen
