An interesting article. My opinion is if that give you a hashtag, then they want you to tweet!  Many's the conference I have attended in spirit via enthusiastic tweets from delegates! I like to think I can do the same for others - particularly those with a low PD budget!

There Are 181,000 Social Media 'Gurus,' 'Ninjas,' 'Masters,' and 'Mavens' on Twitter

There Are 181,000 Social Media 'Gurus,' 'Ninjas,' 'Masters,' and 'Mavens' on Twitter | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

As a public service, I like to periodically check in on the number of self-proclaimed social media "gurus," "ninjas," "masters" and "mavens" on Twitter. Why? Well, it seems like an important metric, an indicator of something.

Ally Greer's curator insight, January 7, 2013 3:42 PM

As of this month, the number of Twitter users that refer to themselves as social media "gurus," "ninjas," "mavens," "experts," or even "freaks," has increased to 181,000.


According to B.L. Ochman, "a guru is something someone else calls you, not something you call yourself." I could not agree more with her. It's hard to believe someone when they refer to themselves as people who are often worshipped in religious or intellectual contexts.


Check out the video at the end of the post; it's a hilarious parody of the "social media guru."

Two Pens's curator insight, January 13, 2013 11:38 PM

I thank the good Lord that I never claimed to be a ninja, a maven, nor a master. Goddess? That would be me.
