creative Twitter bios (Part 3)

Your bio on Twitter can be an opportunity to promote your expertise, link to your ecommerce site, and more. Observe the great variety of bio and the imagination displayed. Some are brief, others are lengthy. Some are comical, others are serious.

What effect does your Twitter bio have on your fans, customers, and friends?


Be sure to also read Part 2 and Part 1 in this series of Creative Twitter Bios.

Not only is this a labor of love ... I also find it very useful to see so many on one page and be able to examine the nuance in such an easy to grasp way.

Mahalo nui for including me.

Aloha, Rox

Steven, you have captured an vital part of being on the web - identifying not only who you are, but what you stand for. Women, especially, want this. when we land on a site or a blog and cannot find a bio (a REAL bio, not your resume), it disappoints us and...we are more inclined to move on.

Thank you for including me in your lengthy and useful list. I would write more but I dislocated my shoulder...old story now...however, there are still weeks of therapy ahead and the pain is ever present.

Cheers, Yvonne

Thanks for the mention!

An interesting concept. Thanks for including me in this list. The range of personalities becomes very apparent when they're presented in this way.

p.s. I wonder how many people will find my "real leprechauns" link now...

great post. thanks for the insight!

Jane Chin said...

Excellent post... I changed my Twitter & Plurk bios after reading it. My old bio was a collection of nouns and more "formal/business like" while my current bio is more personal and reflective of where I currently am.

How very fun! Appreciate the include

Thanks for the include! Think you could correct the spelling on my name tho? ;)
