What are your duties at your job and do you use twitter as a tool for your job?

I’m editor of the Gloucester Daily Times and Cape Ann magazine. I also handle most of the social media for both publications. The facebook accounts for both publications are linked to Twitter, so I can try and multitask ( I can Ryan saying "No, no, NO" right now.)
But I  retweet stuff I think will be interest to readers — Facebook followers miss out on that.
Also when breaking news happens, I tweet about it first, then post on facebook when I have enough to put together something more substantial.

Why do you think you are follow worthy on Twitter?

By searching for #CapeAnn, #GloucesterMA, #RockportMA, #EssexMA or #ManchesterMA you can find out the news that’s important to you as a resident of these communities. I don’t tweet everything, but if anything is trending on gloucestertimes.com, I usually post it.

What types of tweets or twitter user drive you up a wall?

Spammers who use @GDTnews to get my attention for viagra sales, weight-loss gimmicks, etc.

Who are some of your favorite twitter users?

Work-related: @Joey_C, @DscvrGlstr, @VisitEssexMA, @AP (Associated Press), @kidsns and Steve@alertnewengland, a scanner junkie who tweets the latest on the police front.
For fun: @FranJurga and @HoofcareJournal, both by Gloucester resident Fran Jurga who blogs about equestrian news and horse-related hoof care; @goodreads for the latest on new books

Do you have a website you would like to promote?

Of course, gloucestertimes.com!

Five Questions With Ryan Pinkham-

What are your duties at your job and do you use twitter as a tool for your job?

1. I work as a content developer on the marketing team at Constant Contact. My main responsibility is developing educational content to help small businesses and nonprofits better market themselves online. 

For me, Twitter is more about building my own profile online. I use the site to share posts from our blog and to share other industry-related articles, news stories, or hot topics.

It’s also a valuable networking and communication tool that enables me to hear directly from business owners and other marketers with questions, feedback, and ideas of their own.

Why do you think you are follow worthy on Twitter?

If you’re interested in email marketing, social media marketing, and anything related to small businesses check me out. If there’s something going on around town that people are talking about, I also like to share my two cents.

Sometimes I tweet pictures of booze, food, and puppies. Sometimes at the same time, sometimes not.

What types of tweets or twitter user drive you up a wall?

Any sort of overly promotional stuff from businesses really puts me off. If you’re a restaurant I’ve decided to follow on Twitter, I don’t need you to keep asking me to visit your restaurant. Instead, tell me what’s on the menu, take pictures of people enjoying your food, share interested articles, maybe share a few tips from your kitchen. Make it interesting.

Oh, and autofeeds from Facebook. If you don’t want to be active on Twitter then don’t be on Twitter. Twitter isn’t going to make or break your business. In fact, most businesses probably don’t need to be there. But if you’re going to be there, be there, don’t just serve me stuff from your Facebook Page. I ain’t down with that.

Who are some of your favorite twitter users?

I think if you’re a business who wants to learn how to do it right, follow @Boloco. In fact, follow Boloco on every social network and do as they do. I also think the social media team at Constant Contact (@ConstantContact) does an amazing job at sharing content that small businesses can actually use to improve their businesses. I know, it sounds like a shameless plug but if you’re looking for that type of stuff, check ‘em out.

Otherwise, I really use Twitter as a feed for the blogs, websites, news outlets I like. I’m kinda getting burnt out with all the personal sharing on social media. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, it’s just too much…

Do you have a website you would like to promote?
