You Are What Your Tweet!

You Are What You Tweet!

If you are like me, you follow a lot of different people, companies and movements via the various social platforms.  I enjoy the variety of topics that come across my twitter stream, LinkedIn profile and Facebook updates. 

If you follow me you’ll get pretty decent glimpse into my life – recruiting, social biz, shoes and a complete foodie – I digress.

Do you ever take a look at your profile to see who is following you? Are you following them? So many questions, right?

These are important questions though because as you build your digital resume/profile you really do become what you tweet. Who you follow and who follows you are much like the people you surround yourself with.

Think about the colleagues at work that you go to lunch with.  Who are you often seen sitting next to at staff meetings and company functions? What is their reputation like? Is that someone you want to be connected with?  Are they known to curse at work, miss deadlines, be a chronic complainer or someone who can’t meet goals?

It’s not too different in the social space – just on a grander scale and with more opportunities to align yourself with thought leaders in your industry.

Take a look at what – and who – you are tweeting, re-tweeting and pushing out through LinkedIn. Is that really who you are or do you need to clean up the group of people you surround yourself with?
