Social Share: Feeding the Beast

eAlert e93d1766-ec73-4d10-aea6-fd03675855f9

<p>Welcome back to The Social Share, a biweekly newsletter designed to help you build your social audience one tweet at a time. Each week we pluck a letter from the overflowing mailbag, tear it open and dispense some wisdom. Let's get to it!</p><table style="border: 2px solid #000000; font-style: italic; border-image-source: initial; border-image-slice: initial; border-image-width: initial; border-image-outset: initial; border-image-repeat: initial;">
<p>Dear Social Share,</p>
<p>The yawning maw of my Twitter feed haunts my waking life. There remains not a single morsel of content left which I can throw into this hungry abyss I've conscripted. Try as I might to keep this monster happy, I've got nothing to left to give. I can't bare to watch it waste away, succumbing to its pangs. Tell me, Social Share, how can I feed this beast?</p>
<p>Doc in Industry City</p>
<p>P.S. - This newsletter is absolutely electrifying. It really brings the subject to life.</p>
<p>Thanks for the letter, Doc. This isn't an uncommon concern among people attempting to keep an active social feed, and thankfully the answer doesn't require any new software or search tactics. To "feed the beast" you don't need to look any further than your email inbox. </p>
If you get any amount of newsletters in your inbox, you know that they are notoriously difficult to keep up with. They come in at I opportune times and end up buried below higher priority item by the end of the day. The answer to your question is to kill two birds with one stone. <br />
<br />
If you get newsletters, it's because you were interested enough in the subject to subscribe at some point. Couple that interest with your desire to keep an active social feed. To start, choose just one article to read from each newsletter. Read it completely. One bird down. <br />
<br />
Now write three tweets, one using the title, another on the key finding, and the third a response, a question, or be a tweet of gratitude in which you @mention the author or the organization. Two birds. 
<p>Until next time,</p>
<p>The Social Share</p>
