Tweeting the Night Away

I welcomed @Jason_Pollock  back to the show today to learn a bit more about Twitter.  I'm doing it, but it's still a bit of a mystery to me.

Jason Pollock is a filmmaker, writer, and activist who has just finished writing, producing, and directing his first film called, "The Youngest Candidate" which follows the story of 4 teens who ran for public office in America. 

TYC was produced by David Letterman’s company, Worldwide Pants, in partnership with Oscar winner Lawrence Bender (producer of ‘Pulp Fiction’ and ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, etc..) and Balance Vector Productions. It follows the story of 4 teens that ran for public office in America. 

Jason took to Twitter to help promote his film, and has amassed a ridiculous 48,028 followers!  

A whole new world is opening up online, along with new ways to reach a potential audience.  But, as Jason explains, don't just take to Twitter to promote or sell... you've got to provide good content.
