With the wide variety of tools available, it can sometimes be overwhelming when trying to figure out how to Share the Martini with others. Here are some tips to help you navigate the social media jungle and make sure that everyone knows how much you love Martini in the Morning.
Our Twitter username is @theLoungeSound so make sure to follow us. Twitter has over 500 million users so we want you to help us spread the word across the Twitter universe about MartiniInTheMorning.com Here is how you can help:
- @theloungesound – write a tweet about why you love Martini in the Morning and be sure to mention our username of @theloungesound somewhere in your tweet. You could use some of the names of your favorite MITM artists such as Frank Sinatra or Michael Buble; say we play the Greatest Songs Ever Written; that people can listen at MartiniInTheMorning.com or via TuneIn Radio app etc.
- #ShareTheMartini – put this hashtag in your tweet and you’ll be able to connect with fellow MITM listeners from around the world, plus this encourages other people to spread the word too
- Retweet – you could retweet some of our tweets so that your friends will see us in their Twitter timelines too.
- Useful Twitter Tip – try not to start tweets with a @username as this means only the person who you’ve mentioned, plus any mutual followers between the two of you will be able to see your tweet in their timelines. For a tweet to show up in ALL of your followers timelines you would have to put a period or any symbol/emoticon before the @username (though this can look a bit strange), so the best thing is to re-word the tweet to put the @username elsewhere in the tweet.
Obviously, if you’re just replying to one specific person and don’t mind that it is only them that sees the tweet, then you can put their @username at the beginning of a tweet
