Every city or town needs a simple Twitter hashtag (i.e. #MadisonCT, #BaltimoreMD)

July 22, 2013

0

A quick thought… Some cities and towns have active visitor-focused and tourism-related organizations that market their hometown well and respond quickly to requests for information about what’s happening locally. There are also cities and towns that have a hashtag they’ve created and promoted, while some have one that has grown more organically. Other locations have […]

The Washington Post this week announced details on their new paywall, a “metered subscription model,” according to a letter from Post publisher Katharine Weymouth, that will be phased in beginning June 12. Through this new system, anyone accessing The Post’s website “will initially be able to view 20 pieces of content per month before being […]

Deadspin posted a story Thursday stating, “ESPN has suspended [Bill] Simmons from Twitter for a few days after he called the Skip Bayless-Richard Sherman First Take meltdown last week awful and embarrassing.” In the piece, Deadspin’s John Koblin points out two tweets Simmons sent: I am not defending this segment – youtu.be/j6x-O3kb1sI – I thought […]

WordPress tells me that January 10 was my best day ever for follows of my blog. That was the same day I posted about my recent move to Madison, CT and the PR and marketing work I’m now trying to drum up near my new hometown or remotely. With new followers on board, I thought now […]

Who will draw a bigger crowd at home tonight in DC, the NBA’s Washington Wizards as they host the Portland Trailblazers or Catholic University as they host Frostburg State? That was the topic discussed earlier on Twitter between 106.7 The Fan’s Sky Kerstein and Holden Kushner, who then provided the photo evidence: Here is your […]

The #hiremikeholden hashtag made it onto washingtonpost.com, thanks to my fantastic wife! The Post wished good luck on Twitter too, after I tweeted the image below.  Thanks to them and everyone else who has been spreading the word about my job search and solo PR and marketing work.

You disappoint me, Twitter and Alec Sulkin (@thesulk)

I absolutely hate when people use “retarded” or “retard” as a derogatory term. And Twitter has a tweet highlighted on their search page right now that does just that. It’s unacceptable. The use of the word as an insult completely disgusts me. And this has nothing to do with the politics of the tweet. The […]

Flashmobs at the polls

November 2, 2010

0

Like with every election, it’s been written that some mid-term 2010 races are already over, hours (or even days) before the voting is over. Polls predicting various winners will likely be correct in many cases. But more than ever before, I have a hard time believing anything is over until the last ballot has been […]

The Mike Wise Issue in One Tweet

September 1, 2010

0

Regarding Washington Post columnist Mike Wise and his experiment on Twitter—where he sent out tweets containing made-up information to basically test a theory and see if people would pass it on without verifying its accuracy—this tweet by John Ourand with Sports Business Journal says it all: “@MikeWiseguy You aen’t right about “nobody checking facts” on […]

The non-profit teaching certification program I work for ran a small promotion on Facebook and Twitter last week and we saw some nice results, bringing in over $12,000 in revenue in one day. The promotion also helped us gain new followers, particularly on Facebook, where we’ve gained about 100 new fans since we first announced […]
