Based on my experience with Twitter, a large amount of the content is composed of rants or complaints about politicians, celebrities, or a challenging task of assignment. These types of posts can certainly put someone into a negative mood. So here’s 3 ways to use Twitter so brighten instead of darken someone’s day.
- Tweet or retweet a humorous (but professional) tweet
Laughter is a great way to brighten the mood. It can be used to present serious matters in a lighter way. However, make sure to stay appropriate and professional since current or future employers may be watching.
- Commend someone for doing a spectacular job
Compliments can make anyone’s day a little better. Acknowledging great performance is also a great way to promote continued excellence. Remember that Twitter is a public platform so make sure their accomplishment is something that can be made public.
- Tweet a motivational quote
This may be a stereotypical to try to make someone’s day better but it certainly can make a difference. You never know the state of someone’s mind and you may give them just enough extra motivation to get them through an obstacle.
Now that you’re armed with some ideas, go out and make a positive and professional difference.
