UPDATE: When I said ‘friends’, I meant ‘friends’. Not acquaintances, not people who don’t know me and still want to connect ‘networks’, not people I’ve never met. You know? ‘Real’ friends? Those who know what I’m up to even without Facebook and Twitter?

I’m still learning to use Twitter myself. I have linked it to my Facebook profile and suddenly [ because of all my updates ], people who had ‘forgotten’ about me, now have me as a top-of-the-mind recall. I’ve had a couple of friends complaining about the barrage of updates as well – but they are not my target audience. I have a lot of people who call themselves my ‘fans’ and they are curious to know more about Naina The Designer – whether she is a regular person like them, how does she run her business, how does she deal with clients etc. Still learning to minimize junk updates though. Tough to come up with something that appeals to ‘ALL’. I don’t believe Twitter is about ‘direct’ business opportunities – it’s about creating buzz, a word-of-mouth solution as well as giving a more ‘human’ face to your business.

This was in response to Laura Fitton’s question to all her ‘followers’ about why they follow her.

  1. Well, I hope you keep posting links to your designs and sketches on twitter. How you deal with your clients and some tips on how you get the ideas and design will be great too. 🙂

  2. Thanks Rajbir! Sure, that’s the idea – but I’m not sure everyone wants the blow-by-blow account of how I work. Besides working style is also a very personal choice – so it might not be something that works for everyone else. Will try to post as many links as I can of the sketches and the process etc. whenever I have time to do so – when I’m swamped with work it’s impossible to even blog about it on the design blog, forget Twittering!

  3. I am not sure what others want but I would love to see your sketches and how you work.
    Just an overview of the process will help the beginners like me. I am sure many will be inspired by you.
    Thank you!
