I ran across a fun website called Amplicate the other day. Amplicate tracks the opinions you express on Twitter. Today they are reporting those as Loves or Hates. A few days ago when I found the site they used the words Rocks and Sucks. It’s an interesting way to get a feel for the overall positive or negative nature of your dialog on Twitter.
Humble and Happy. I have always thought my wife Cheryl’s presence on Twitter would be best described at humble and happy. Amplicate seems to support this opinion as I see the word Loves a whole lot more times than the word Hates in her Opinions list.
She tweets humble and happy thoughts. Take a peak at her stream. Positive, upbeat, inspirational, and fun would all be ways to describe her tweets. She offers to help others and is always quick to offer an encouraging word. Cheryl has 500+ followers because of her, not any of the trappings of her work.
Do they follow “you” or “who you are”. I’m not saying it’s easy to become a starter in the NFL but if you are, reaching 500 followers would be a piece of cake. As a matter of fact it might take less than a day. Would that same person reach 500 followers in even a year without the trappings of being an NFL football player?
How do you tweet? Can you think of two or three words that describe your style? Our friend @Bananza shares her tweeting style via her Twitter profile “Candid. Random.” Totally works for her. Oh, and Amplicate backs this up with almost all Loves and just a few well justified and funny Hates.
What do you think about tools like Amplicate? Do they help you better understand your Twitter style? Please take a few moments to add your comments. You can find me on Twitter as @raffel .
