Indian Express picks my tweet as Tweet of the Day

In this post I’m just patting my own back… Feel free to skip if that doesn’t interest you.

It’s not every day you get to see your (nick) name on front page of a national newspaper. A photo is a bonus.

Well, it happened with me today, though it contains only an icon sized image and twitter handle. 

One of the tweets I had made yesterday was picked up by the New Indian Express team as “Tweet of the Day” and was honoured on the front page of their today’s edition (18th Feb 2011)Indian-express-feb18-titlepage
Here are the views of the newspaper and close up of the section which showed my photo n tweet.
Original tweet can be found here on twitter. You can follow me on twitter at @enidhienidhi-twitter-tnie

Above would have gone unnoticed, but for an ex colleague who identified it and brought to my attention. Thanks to Aska for the alert.

Vijaya Karanataka (Kannada) and Youth Express (New Indian Express supplement) were two papers in which some of my work had got publish during high school days. Feels good to be back in Indian Express, though in a negligible form. Ever since blogging took over, writing for mainstream media has almost stopped. Should focus a bit on that. Appearing in print is always more satisfying than online.

Recently completed 3 years on twitter-never worried about follower count-something considered as your measure of success on twitter. For me it has always been quality of content and usefulness of the information

Twitter is proving to be good source of content for mainstream media- Several channels display tweets during discussions and debates, what trends on twitter is often discussed in print as well...

ಅಭಿನಂದನೆಗಳು.

ಕೆಲವು ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಹಿಂದೆ ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಪಬ್ ಗಲಾಟಿ ಆದಾಗ-ಅದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಇಡೀ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಮೂಲಭೂತವಾದಿಗಳ ಕೈಗೆ ಹೋಗುತ್ತಿದೆಯೆಂದು ಔಟ್ಲುಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಲೇಖನ ಬಂದಾಗ-ನಮ್ಮ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಯ ದತ್ತಪೀಠದಬಗ್ಗೆ-ಸೂಪಿ ಸಂತನ ಸ್ಥಳವನ್ನು ಹಿಂದೂಗಳು ಅಕ್ರಮವಾಗಿ ತಮ್ಮದೆನ್ನುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಎಂದು ಬರೆದಾಗ-letter to editor ಗೆ ಆ ಪೀಠ ಹಿಂದೂ ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ಮುಜರಾಯಿ ಇಲಾಖೆಯಡಿ ಬರುತ್ತದೆಯೆಂದು ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾಗ-ಅದು outlook ನಲ್ಲಿ ಬಂದ ಘಟನೆ ನೆನಪಾಯಿತು.

Putti said...

Perhaps now is a good time to start claiming you are a celebrity/soc med expert/inventor of wikipedia/ president of internet/ etc etc like a certain other fraud blogger from Chennai you are associated with. ;-)

You could start charging companies tons of money and then tweet about their product. Good way to monetize your twitter activity. Agree?

ps: Putti is not a code word. It used to be a Kannada comics little girl character. Not sure if it is published anymore.

Putti:

Have no intention of calling myself all that. Am happy with my full time job at the IT company. Blogging and others continue to be a passion and have no commercial motive.

I know whom you're referring to. Since the topic is subjective and outside the scope of this post, I'd not elaborate on it.

I just have a few hundred followers. If I'd followed back every bot/human who follows me, and keep following more n more people, I'd probably have more, but the followers number wasn't a matter for me. Commercial tweets do not make sense for my profile and not interested. If I don't sustain quality no one will read my blog/tweets.

I know Putti in Kannada means little girl.

there's one thing i can say. if you don't pat your own back, no one else will, (sometimes at least :) ) of course, that doesn't seem like much of a problem for you... 400 visitors a day dude! the whole #bloggosphere envies you! And is patting your back, all at the same time - #cheers
