Yasss, Verified on Twitter!!!

Working in Social Media is fun. Demanding at times and always full of surprises.

Its filled with tons of small victories that require hard work and dedication to achieve. For example, increasing your brands awareness and favorability, getting high engagement with good content or just a simple like or follow.

But then there’s big victories like getting your brand verified on Twitter.

I manage two other Twitter accounts and after numerous emails and calls to Twitter, i have finally managed to get those accounts the sort after blue tick!

OMG! This was my reaction!

Which one are you?

Follow me on Instagram at- urbanenzo 🙂

Yes, i did it!

Expanding my skills and being allowed to do so has been such a learning curve for me of which i am grateful for. I really had a epic week as i got to do so many career highlighting things such as interviewing Ford President and CEO, Alan Mulally using Instagram and Twitter and conceptualizing and hosting a Consumer event i called “Social Media Day” at the Johannesburg International Motor Show.

From invites to mc’ing my own event, the live bands, reveals and trending on Social Media, i think my #FordAtJIMS event went well.

I am proud of myself for pulling it all off and for having another successful event backed up by Social Media. Here’s to me for taking things to the next level.

Check out some of the visuals:

Notable Quotables From Yeezus That We Know You’re Going To Abuse On Social Media!

kanye-west-yeezus-650_0It’s happening.

A weekend before the June 18th release date put in place for Kanye West’s 6th album, Yeezus, the powers of the internet caught wind of a leak, and with the click of a download link everyone had access to Kanye’s lyrical ingenuity.

What exactly does that mean? It means that the raps of Kanye on Yeezus are now in the hands of the reckless youth and eager-to-be-relevant social media stunters who will tweet, Facebook, Instagram caption and sidewalk chalk the fuck out of every catchy line on the album before you even form a strong opinion on the body of work.

TRACK 9: BOUND 2

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The people tweeting Send It Up and Bound 2 will be one and the same, just looking to turn up at high octaves and stunt on social media with pre-recorded lyrics to match. Can’t be mad at that.

“They ordered champagne but still look thirsty”

“Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty”
