No, I Don’t Get Paid to Tweet
Everyone has their little elevator pitch, an inner monologue of sorts to tell others about what you do and what your job entails.
And when I tell mine, I talk about being the social media producer and community manager for my job. Sometimes, people ask me (jokingly, of course) if I get paid to tweet.
I have even found myself describing this part of my job as “being able to get paid to tweet.”
But that’s false.
I don’t get paid to tweet. I get paid to engage.
I don’t know why I happened upon this realization recently. But I’m glad I did. It has helped to reinforce my professional outlook on social media. It has helped me ensure that I can not just broadcasting content on social media channels, but also connecting with people.
So next time I’m out and about and you ask me what I do, I’ll won’t be telling you that I get paid to tweet.
