In Lehman’s Terms I love to position and leverage video as tool for social engagement. I made a series of videos to update some of my twitter followers on the power of 140 text characters, simple update on my end and attempt to open further dialogue. My method was a direct message tweet that was customized to each follower using simple text and video. My goal was to create a visual and engaging message to connect instantly and thank them for being a follower.
I am not a big fan of automatic direct messages on Twitter after we just connected especially if the message is impersonal. In some cases this technique can be viewed as spam. Get to know me first and build the relationship. Make an effort to do the research and look over my profile first etc.
I do feel it is important to acknowledge new followers and connections on Twitter, LinkedIn etc and a simple value-centric response is warranted at certain times.
