The Month in Review, Twitter-Style

rsmithing at TwitterSo I’ve committed to writing at least one post per month on social media. Sometimes it happens organically, sometimes deliberately. This is one of those deliberate months, what with this being the final hours of the month. But this is a good one – in fact, it’s the very best… of my Twitter over the past few weeks.

Man, I love embedding tweets

Here are some of my favorite tweets I crafted this month, to give a little more depth to the hyper-fleeting nature of our favorite micro-blogging platform. Oh, and you should follow me on Twitter if you’re at all amused by any of this…

Started off this month with a visit to a local winery, Divine Llama Vineyards. Made for a sweet photo-op and a Foursquare moment:

These haikus inspired by my frustration with MS Office evolved into a full-on blog post but were Twitter gold initially:

I’ve also taken to posting my favorite songs occasionally via the excellent Soundhound app:

In the middle of the month, I attended a great webinar by Mark Schaefer, and had several great twitter-interactions meanwhile:

And finally, I commemorated the annual Talk Like A Pirate Day by getting into #Pinchat completely in pirate voice:

Microsoft Office Haikus

Microsoft OfficeBloated MS Word.
Can’t copy and paste freely.
I’ll just use Notepad.

Good Ol’ PowerPoint.
Bullet points and so much more.
Poor man’s Photoshop.

Microsoft Excel.
Remember the Chart Wizard?
Harry Potter style.

Outlook rules our lives.
Lost without it, slaves to it.
My mailbox is full.

Spontaneous Photography Thoughts

Saw a photo, got inspired, wrote something:

We can hold the sky,
Touch the sun… for a moment
In photography.
