Today's entry in the category of Supreme Irony is the Twitterer whose "app" released 12 tweets within an hour.She is not the first. One of them was a retweet about "tweating" people the way you want to be tweeted. NO kidding. If that logic prevails, one would NOT utilize an app that spam-releases stored tweets. After all, who would want 12 tweets from one person within 60 minutes? Not I! So don't do it to others.
This is where I find humor: in the ironic, the juxapositioned, the inconsistent; people who espouse one thing and do another. I write and speak about connections, mingling, building alliances and relationships and making people feel comfortable in conversations in any room. Some of my clients are shocked (pleasantly) when I offer to attend a reception before or after my presentation. Not many speakers do that. My comment is always, "If I avoided receptions and the wonderful face to face opportunities in rooms full of your people, why would anyone listen to a word I have to say?" That makes perfect sense and my offer is always appreciated. My bonus: I get to meet some of the neat people in the room that I may not have met if I split the scene after my speech. The other bonus: clients acknowledge that I "walk my talk". And you?
