Final Reflections on Social Media and Digital Business

The opening weeks of this class, I’m not going to lie I was angry and terrified. I thought commenting on blog posts every week and tweeting every week (and creating a “business professional”) twitter was going to suck. It seemed really time consuming with everything else I have going on in my life. The first […]

How Twitter Made the NBA the Most Relatable League

Professional athletes love social media. They take to the different platforms to interact with each other, their fans, their haters, teammates and everything in between. Since my rekindled relationship with Twitter last summer I did notice however, that the Twitter for the Big Four sports leagues in the United States is vastly different. The MLB […]

I had put in my bets with friends about the spread and of course had my family boxes (squares) that I was hoping to […]

Social Media: A Rollercoaster of Emotions

In 2013 when I graduated high school I deleted my Twitter. It was fun to tweet nonsense and music lyrics and have peers comment, like, and retweet my thoughts. Then one day, my advisor sat me down and scared the life out of me. He told me that colleges and businesses look through candidates’ social […]
