Post #2

This tweet utilized a clever gif and headline in  order to drive engagement. Everyone has rough days and everyone loves pizza and has experience the empty-box moment before. It is the relatable and unexpected, and this lead to its success.

Post #3

Using the tag #HumpDay, I easily attached this post to one of the more popular tags on any given Wednesday. It is a popular phrase and is very relatable. Wednesday is the universal grind day. My tweet provided an interesting media photo, and a fun twist on the traditional use of #HumpDay. Most posts are about grinding through HumpDay or crawling through it barely alive. My post twists this concept, showing that #HumpDay is not a problem.

Post #4

I loved this tweet because I thought it was very clever. I tweeted this early in the semester, at a point where the majority of my followers were my peers in the class. Since we were all using TweetDeck at the time, I thought it would be cheeky to reference the tool without actually using it. It was a cool twist on a relevant assignment.

Post #5

For this tweet, I utilized the “reply” option and made a blue line between two tweets. I made this post on Superbowl Sunday with the hopes that users would be trafficking twitter by the millions, and all the patriot-hating fans would throw me a like.

Post #6

For this series of posts it was necessary to experiment with headlines. I went for a casual headline (“Always love to see….”) and a more “toned” headline (“Damn, really….”). This allowed me to play with voice and tone in a post, and the results were surprisingly similar. The big difference came in impressions, which were significantly higher for the top post. I suppose this occurred because the wording creates more tension that a reader will likely take an interest in.

Post #7

In this post I engaged my most influential follower. I used social rank in order to better access his voice and word choice, and made sure to plug in his most used word (success). Funny enough, the use of “success” led to this post being successful in term of engagement and interaction, as @jstorres tweeted back at me.

Post #8

This tweet offered 3 key things that led to its impression and retweet success. First It used strong visual media. Any time there is a brawl, people are going to want to see it. Additionally, it was put out in quick time. This fight broke out about 10 minutes before I made this post, making it one of the first earlier posts about the fight, and making it visible to people just picking up on the story. Finally, I used relevant hashtags, including the players’ names and #NBA.

This tweet was very useful in gaining followed on another source of social media, snapchat. After this post was made, I earned 3 more snapchat followers. This was a surprisingly high conversion rate.

Post #10

This post boasted a very funny trending topic. Sprint had just taken a shot at Verizon where they suggested that the 1% better coverage offered by Verizon was not worth the 15% higher billing rate (doing so via an ad where a man fakes his own death by car accident to escape his Verizon bill). Verizon clapped back with a brutal yet hysterical commercial, which featured a car crash for every dropped call the 1% difference in coverage is responsible for (5 billion a year). This tweet joined the trending Verizon vs Sprint wave on twitter and had a strong visual. As an advertising major, a lot of my followers also take a particular interest in advertisements so I knew this would be very relevant to my audience.

Klout Analysis:Screen Shot 2017-04-28 at 11.43.02 AM.png

The Klout analysis revealed a strong amount of growth in early February, and a subtler growth from February 25th to March 5th. After this period it seemed to plato with short spikes and short lows. I would attest the first and major growth to my use of the class hashtag, which enabled all of my peers to see my tweets and follow me.

Twitter Web Card

  • Twitter Ad Spending

  • Campaign Analysis

The twitter sponsored ads worked wonders. Since I believed my target audience to be similar to myself, I chose similar interests. Music (hip-hop, rap, pop), sports, and comedy. I tried to incorporate several hashtags in each post, and to encourage retweeting. I included hashtags like #Meme #Comedy #Lol and #Petty. I spent 71 cents a day over the stretch of 4/5/2017 to 4/10/17. the total spend was $5.


  • Engagement

The total number of views received on imager was 1030. the total number of impressions on twitter was 599. I interestingly made a second post later to Imgur from an account and shared it with the community, and it quickly racked up 358 views.

Celtics And Thomas Struggle In Playoff Opener

This Sunday, the #1 seeded Celtics took the court against the #8 seeded Bulls. Isaiah Thomas, starting point guard of the Celtics, made a game-time decision to play in the playoff-opener. This comes to the surprise of many, as just yesterday, Thomas’ sister, Chyna Thomas, died in a car accident. It was a tough game emotionally for those involved. The Celtics would eventually fall to the Bulls with a final score of 106-102. This loss did not, however, deter fans from both sides from praising and praying for Isaiah Thomas and his family.

Most were supportive.

A few were less friendly, and more competitive.

As always the Boston fans showed their game-day spirit.

And some fans were more analytical.

While some were for the celtics, and some were against, there was an underlying theme of appreciate of Thomas’ tragedy and outstanding bravery. While some fans chose to smack-talk the celtics, it was pretty clear to all that the 5’9 point guard, has a heart and strength of a giant.

How has social media changed you?

Social Media has become as intrinsic to modern American life as Football and Apple Pie. In all honesty, social media has changed me for the worse. I am embarrassed to even think about the amount of time I spend bouncing from one social media forum to the next. I believe that despite how much social media brings us together, it really takes away from your greatest relationships. Sure I am able to stay connected with friends from camp I haven’t seen in years. And yes I can tweet at celebrities and have my opinion seen by hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people worldwide. But what I have lost is some of the authenticity of closer relationships. Everyone in my family sits at the dinner table with a hand on their phone, scrolling down some app liking photos or tweets or statuses. But we don’t talk like we used too. Smartphones and social media have enabled us to skip the small talk; no longer must we converse with those in our immediate radius, cause we can talk to anyone anywhere. With less conversation in-person, those genuine loving relationships between family members and close friends suffer. We have evolved to communicate so much and with so many people that somehow we now fail to communicate with those closest to us.

When I was in 5th grade I received my first phone. It was a flip phone with a mediocre camera and a battery that lasted 3+ days. In order to text I had to press each button several time to get the letter I wanted. There were no apps; there were no high-definition cameras or Snapchats. If you opened the Internet app you immediately rushed to shut it down so your family didn’t receive any abstract charges. A phone was just that; a phone. I miss those times when your phone was a tool and not a toy. A device and not a distraction. I challenge you to disable all your social media accounts for 24 hours, and enjoy the life that is in front of you.

See if the real world isn’t just as sweet.
