    they re advocating But it does also lead to a chicken and egg consideration did Twitter or social media lead to them becoming more socially active or did the activity lead them to Twitter Social Media Twitter How Not To Use Twitter Comment Person gets a job at Cisco Person tweets that they re not all that excited about job Person gets tweeted back at by Cisco employee Person does not get job Person then learns a lesson and shares it with others Should Tim Levad have backed off Not necessarily it was crass of me to say what I did and I take full responsibility for the stupidity of my action Instead of blaming him let me use him to illustrate what I have learned Tim Levad and timmylevad are two different people timmylevad is defined entirely by the number of people listening to it But whatever timmylevad says is backed up by the subtle persuasive knowledge that somewhere back there Tim Levad the person is pulling the strings I don t really mean to use Tim specifically in this allegory but the point is that people with many Twitter followers can t afford to be real people on Twitter Tim Levad would probably never use Twitter to make a flippantly negative remark about his career because he understands that timmylevad is more of a mass media channel than a human being It s important to think about these things as you go about your daily life How am I using Twitter really Do I have the service set up in the right way to support that Am I more of a mass media channel than a human being Do I act as such I don t entirely agree with the first point Too much about how someone acts
