Miss Lori uses her Twitter power to tell stories for events and brands

What’s in a tweet? Ideas. Information. Action. But when you add a hashtag to a tweet it becomes a part of a larger conversation series. And that series, when you look at it in a stream, can tell a very interesting, sometimes powerful story.

The ability to conjure up ideas is not limited by your bank balance just your courage to dream out loud #cgiamerica

I am known in circles as a power tweeter because of my ability to share volumes of information 120-140 characters at a time during the course of an event. I work very hard to bring my community into the milieu of an event. Social media is meant to be just that, a social exchange. My tweets aren’t meant to stand alone, they are meant to inspire conversation, inspire sharing and inspire action. I don’t report on an event I get in the middle of it, sharing the view from within with everyone I can touch through my engagement.
What are you doing with your twitter pressence? Are you harnessing the power of twitter and the all mighty hashtag. Be powerful. Tweet from within.
