creative Twitter bios (Part 2)



Micro-content includes email subject lines, forum topic thread titles, blog taglines, company slogans, microblog/status update messages (Twitter, Pownce, Jaiku, Plurk, etc.), social network profiles, and Twitter bios.

Think about what your Twitter bio says about you. How would a potential client or customer relate to your bio copy?

Let these creative Twitter bios inspire, confound, or amuse you! From genius to goofy, there's enough variety to satisfy the most demanding and diverse tastes. Notice how smart people use silly bios -- or use their bio to market their products and link to their website or blog.

Perhaps, after examining these Twitter bios, you'll think of a way to improve your own. Or maybe you'll just have a few laughs!


Be sure to check out Creative Twitter Bios (Part 1). Part 3 will be published tomorrow.

I'm thinking of changing my bio to "Arch Villian Mad Scientist, currently working on new information super virus" but I feel like there should be a william burroughs connection in there somewhere.

geekmommy said...

I can't believe I read all of those! :) But it clued me in on about half-a-dozen folks I should've been following, but wasn't yet! :)

Thanks!

(and nice to know somebody read that bio of mine! :))

I'd like to change my Twitter bio, and some other settings, but settings are broken. I keep getting an mistaken error message. I've submitted my problem to Twitter tech support via Get Satisfaction, and have seen that others have the same problem.

But Twitter doesn't seem to care about users. No "satisfaction" occurs. No problems are ever fixed. Twitter is always dysfunctional in some way, and, like so many Web 2.0 services, getting worse.

Thank you for the inclusion, Steven. There is a lot of variety and many personalities there. A good selection for sure.
