Let me start with a disclaimer of sorts: I love Twitter. I’ve sent out thousands of tweets over the past few years, made hundreds of connections and connected other people, been able to promote not only my brand, website, and television content but been able to help other’s get their own messages out. It’s the quickest and fastest way for me to reach out to my network, share and make things happen.
That said, when my following on mobile video site Socialcam grew past half a million people a few weeks ago, I had to do some serious re-evaluation about my social media presence and what it means that more people want to watch my videos than read my tweets. Here’s what I’ve learned so far.
