Want to tweet fat in skinny jeans? – SCN Encourager 11/5/2013

I didn’t know what to think when I received this email?

It all sounds kinda painful to me.

But “tweeting fat” must be a good thing, right?

And, if it is, who’s actually doing it?

Until a few hours ago, I can’t say I had an answer.

Here’s my freshly typed up list, though.

And now you’re ready in case someone wanders into your office and asks.

Four organizations worth following on Twitter because they tweet fat are:

#1  Threadless

Threadless makes custom tee shirts that individuals design. I explain it like they’re boring.
They’re not. Dang, they’ve got 2.2 million followers! Here’s a sample tweet.

#2  The NBA

The NBA has 8.5 million fans following it on Twitter. Oh…if I only had a nickel for each one of them, that’d be $425.000. I could then learn to tweet fat and buy jeans that fit. This sample proves that it promotes more than just LeBron and Kobe.

#3  Dunkin Donuts

Dunkin Donuts taps into into current events and trends with brazen confidence and creativity. How they can tweet out about coffee and donuts 24/7 is beyond me… but they reach 418,000 followers. I didn’t tabulate the “if I had a nickel figure” total. But their ad-jack into the recent big football weekend made me hungry. Check out their 6 second Vine video tweet.

#4  Mental Floss

Mental Floss is one of my favorites. You know what they say about not being able to stop after eating just one potato chip? Well, their tweets are sort of like that. Each one will lead you (and the other 356,000 followers) into something fun and interesting. This one is a hoot.

I’m sorry to cut off list to just these four.

There are lots of organizations out there that tweet out in ways we can learn from.

But I have to email this Encourager out before my wife reads it.

If she sees that I’ve written about “skinny jeans” and “fat” and “donuts”… she’ll place our bathroom scale on my pillow.

I know she will.

She’s almost as predictable as I am.
