Recently, I keep being hit with one particular television advertisement promoting life skills to young adults. The advice from the advertisement is that you can pin a Tweet to the top of your Twitter account page. This is so that pre-job interview your prospective employers browsing your social media output are greeted with your most respectful Tweet rather than the tale of last night’s drinking extravaganza.
I think that pinning posts and pinning Tweets to the top of your profile can be dangerous as sometimes people tend to pin a post that maybe…well…they shouldn’t.
However, when a good choice is made regarding the post that is pinned your social media presence can be dramatically enhanced. First impressions count for so much sometimes.
So, maybe I should pin a Tweet to help attract the kind of Twitter friends that I crave.
I looked through my own account and wondered if there is one Tweet that I would like to be known by.
Well, my Tweets are a mixture of the frivolous and the serious and there is no one Tweet which captures both of these themes.
After careful examination of my four years of Twitter output, I came to the conclusion that there isn’t one Tweet that I would like to be known by nor is there one Tweet that I’m ashamed of.
I’ve littered this post with a few screenshots of my Tweets. Maybe, you can see a Tweet that I should be ashamed of or maybe you see one that you think should be my pinned Tweet.
