Describe yourself in 160 characters!!!! Piece of cake?

Just to give a background about this post before I go on explaining, Twitter does have a small section (very small) where you can write about yourself in 160 characters, yes 160 characters.

It’s called One Line Bio 😉

Check it out

It might seem easy, but once you try to pen it down (I mean type it out) it’s a tuff task for most of us. I have also included my name in that list. Ok, so why is it important to have a Bio?

Bio is your first impression, that’s what people look at. It’s not necessary for you to write everything (well you just have 160 characters). The important thing is to write the real you, it might talk about your profession, what you like, what you are looking for or just add a little bit of humor.

Confusing? Sort of? Ok, let me make it more complicated…. Just kidding, simpler………..

Its all about keywords, make the most of those characters, as these keywords will help people to search you. Amazing …..Right… power of 160 characters. J

Yes it does work, try it out, and just be yourself. Make the most of every character that you have… I mean 160 characters 😉
