My point is simple.
When someone tweets you, or sends you a message on Facebook, or LinkedIn, or whatever social media platform you’re using, respond to them! Not responding to them is like someone calling you on the phone and you refuse to pick up.
I completely understand that we get busy and it’s hard to respond to everyone, but that’s what makes doing it all the more special. A response shows that you care opposed to being someone who simply tries to accumulate as many followers as possible (and later, spams them with useless information).
If U.S. Senator Cory Booker (with 1.5 million twitter followers) can respond to messages, surely we all can.
Accessibility is a new form of currency. Senator Booker gets it, do you?
