As the week began, I started to share a bit of information about Birmingham Shines on Twitter.
Nothing major—so busy, I didn’t have time to engage on social media and wasn’t ready to schedule out tweets.
Birmingham Shines. It’s coming. Stay tuned. #Bham

Wednesday I tweeted the preview episode which I’d published on SoundCloud in advance of submitting the show to iTunes.

I shared the same preview episode SoundCloud embed in a second tweet late Thursday night, April 30.

None of these tweets generated much engagement, although the Wednesday night and Thursday night tweets did much better than the first two.
I’ve noticed my personal engagement in Twitter declining over the past year, mainly for two reasons:
- I’ve been extremely busy and unable to engage regularly on Twitter.
- When I have been on Twitter I haven’t found much interactivity or conversational opportunities
These two tend to feed on each other.
It will be interesting to see how this evolves. I’ll share the Facebook and Instagram information in separate posts.
