Poisonous advice: "Mainstream adoption ought, in our view, to come about via an accommodation between the new currencies and the old regulators..."

The last thing we want is existing 'regulators' to gain control of bitcoin. And listen to this:

" If states remain disengaged from these digital currencies, who will protect their citizens in cases of fraud or hacking, the unfortunate but inevitable corollary of any virtual product?"

The idea that states protect their citizens is quaint, but delusional (and deluding). But as the authors former advisers to Hillary Clinton and David Cameron, what can you expect?

Ally Greer's curator insight, June 13, 2013 2:01 PM

Here's a great tweet skeleton with some useful advice from Gerry Moran.


Something I'd add to the "Format" section: Decide on what format you're going to use based upon your goals. For me, using facts/stats is great for RTs while using headlines (with a little hint of mystery) is optimal for clicks.


Another tip I'd add is to change up the structure every so often and put the link in the middle of your message (or two micromessages). Per [SEO]Moz's Rand Fishkin, tweets with between text tend to get higher click throughs.

Ken Dickens's curator insight, June 16, 2013 11:57 AM

I am not a big Tweeter, but this was helpful.  I would add have separate types of Tweets for different outcomes:  1. clear information for Re-Tweets 2. Tantalizing headlines for clicks.  And, mix up where you put your links.  -Ken
