When I started Twitter two years ago. I never thought I would end up being interviewed for Forbes Magazine
. I guess it's true what they say. If you do what you love, everything will fall into place.
I have to admit that I'm a Twitter Addict
. I love sharing information and being a resource to others. I also enjoy building strong relationships with my followers online and in real life (#IRL) at Tweetups and conferences.
I have built up friendships and trust in my community through Twitter, which also have lead to other benefits like: Audi allowing me to take the new A8 on a San Francisco road trip. A free round-trip flight on Virgin America’s new route from Los Angeles to Toronto. Test driving the new Toyota Prius for a week and trying out a new high end laptop from Hewlett-Packard.
The article suggest a shift, word of mouth advertising from a regular joe like me is more valuable than from a celebrity. You would trust a friends opinion over a celebrities.
So head on over to the Forbes website. Check out my interview," Twitter Marketing Phenomenon Calvin Lee
Also check out Forbes article "Klout: The Biggest Popularity Contest Of All
." It's an interview with Klout CEO, Joe Fernandez. I have a little mention in the article.
I would like to thank Victoria Barret
for interviewing me for Forbes Magazine. Victoria Barret's Twitter is @VictoriaBarret.
