Marching to the Tweet of a different drum

He spoke at Who Needs Copywriters? on Friday 19 April 2013. #wnc2013

He’s a drummer. Which is massively relevant to this guest post.

He is David Levin @davidlevin123.

Here’s his Twitter profile:

writer. drummer. human. writing/tweeting for the likes of @BBCTheVoiceUK and @motherlondon. speaker @TwitterUK‘s Powered By Tweets.

Here are his ten tweets on the rhythm of Twitter.

 

1:

Some people think that a tweet is just a tweet. But it’s not. Inside every tweet is a beat.

 

2:

And like beats that come, from thundering drums, some make you dance and others are a bit shit.

 

3:

Sometimes the beat in a tweet is not so clear. Just words, words, words then BAM! It drops right… #here.

 

4:

140 characters. 140 characters. 140 letters to ride on, just like bannisters. Actually, nothing like banisters. #bannisters

 

5:

#ow about the #ashtags, yes those #appy #ashtag bastards? Hanging on the end of all our tweets like final chapters?

 

6:

A hashtag says full-stop. A hashtag says amen. A hashtag says it’s time that Justin Bieber trended again.

 

7:

I see a little follow-Friday on a tweet. Scaramouch! Scaramouch! Does it get you more fans though?

 

8:

If you wanna be top trending; you got retweet your friends.  Make it last for ages; trending never ends.

 

9:

Beating when you’re tweeting is like drinking while you’re eating. Tweets are like a rollercoaster, as sung by Ronan Tweeting.

 

10:

So, what exactly have we learnt from these 10 tailored tweets? That if you want the words to flow, you’ve got to find the beats. Or retweet Justin Bieber.
