I joined Twitter in 2009, after my friend Susan Serra suggested that I was missing out on the social media fun. I signed up and Susan quickly introduced me to California architect Neal Pann. Since that day, I’ve been a member of a growing virtual family from around the world connected through the vast digital network.
Today, I am following over 2,700 people, most architects or designers sharing their lives through 140 characters. Each day I check in to visit, learn from what others are writing and contribute my own thoughts on architecture and business.
If you haven’t yet participated on Twitter, I recommend you give it a try. It’s difficult to explain the interest gained by these many short interactions. Small firm architects benefit from camaraderie and support offered by others in similar positions. Relationships are formed and friendships are forged.
Want to get started? Sign up and follow me @EntreArchitect and 25 of my architect friends. Check in daily for 14 days and you’ll be hooked. After your two week trial, send me a tweet and let me know if I was right.
Here are 25 architects you should follow on Twitter today:
