How to win* at
1. Read it on Twitter.com once a day, don’t spend all day with TweetDeck in the foreground like a foool, unless your job actually *is* monitoring social media.
2. Post something interesting about once a day. Not that you had toast. That’s not interesting. Except to people doing consumer research at Mothers Pride. And find something original. Don’t just retweet what everyone else is retweeting, like a foool. Unless it’s our stuff, in which case you have a free pass. Go. Run. Retweet us.
3. Occasionally break all the rules and splurge your day away doing @s and RTs at friends and strangers. But you’ll feel dirty later.
*win = it doesn’t take over your life and have you addicted to the next dopamine hit that an exciting RT brings you.
It’s fine to live in a constant stream of information/crap, but not if you want to get like….creative stuff done. You know, like thinking, writing code, drawing crap, writing crap, actually picking up the phone and calling clients. That kind of thing.
I don’t mean win like Charlie Sheen means win, he’s a foool.

Bonus feature: this post replaces a certain naughty word with ‘foool’ to avoid offence. Wherever you see ‘foool’, simply insert your favourite choice of naughty word. But don’t tell your mum.
(Just for avoidance of doubt, I do enjoy Tweeter and won’t be asking them for my money back).
