Twitter Tips From Turtles

By

Remember about a month ago when a cobra escaped from the Bronx Zoo? Someone created a Twitter account (BronxZoosCobra) and quickly gathered over 200,000 followers to read about the cobra's NYC adventures.

Earlier this week a group of turtles made their way from a beach on Jamaica Bay to the nearby Runway 4 at JFK International Airport spawning a new Twitter account, @JFKTurtles. Here are some excerpts:

Besides being entertaining, @JFKTurtles garnered attention from major media outlets -- and Attention is the first part of the AIDA marketing model (Attention, Interest, Desire, Action). Sure, the turtles account may not monetize directly, but it may open other much more lucrative doors.

Find out what digital media analyst Noah Carpenter learned through this experience by reading http://mashable.com/2011/07/01/jfkturtles-lessons/. What demographic made up the bulk of his followers? When was the best time to tweet? And what was the most important lesson of all? All of the answers can be found on Mashable.

I heard about it on the news, which is sad.  I used to see things on Twitter and then hear about it days or weeks later in the news. ... I seldom watch the news.

I enjoyed the insights in the mashable article.

John - I can see  it now The Tortoise and the Hare one of Aesop's fables from the early 1900's re written as the tortoise and the jet plane ..... I think the slow and steady pace of the tortoise is not enough to win this one

What a great idea to gain an audience. I could see how this would be excellent marketing, especially with a local story. Now if only those turtles would make it to Denver!
