Timorese on Twitter

Well facebook is officially a bit of a craze in Timor-Leste. Underneath the surface of things there is really a lot of social change going on in Timor-Leste.  Not really surprising given the increasing access to technology, a wave of petro dollars pushing the bar, and most of the population being under 20 years old.

Late last night I had a look at the #timor hastag on Twitter and found a growing crowd of #Timor tweeps.  Six months ago I blogged on Twitter in #Timor and last night I realised its a growing thing as well.

So what I decided to do was grab as many of them as I could in an hour and the below list is my #Timor tweeps catch as of 26 June 2011.  I define a Timor tweep as a user that is Timorese, in Timor-Leste, or someone that tweets Timor stuff.  There are even a handful of Tweeps on smartphone 3G tweeting while mobile.  Its expensive though – although the Government just made a serious move to liberalise the telcoms sector last week.

There is even a group of Timorese who are making Timor Twitter T-Shirts – right here via facebook no less.

More than a few Timorese businesses are getting online via twitter as well, but its still a small group, they might want have a a look at the new Timorese Chamber of Commerce Twitter account here…..

Here are Top Ten Twitter Tips for businesses, care of Chris Brogan.

  1. Build an account and immediate start using Twitter Search to listen for your name, your competitor’s names, words that relate to your space. (Listening always comes first.)
  2. Add a picture. ( Shel reminds us of this.) We want to see you.
  3. Talk to people about THEIR interests, too. I know this doesn’t sell more widgets, but it shows us you’re human.
  4. Point out interesting things in your space, not just about you.
  5. Share links to neat things in your community. ( @wholefoods does this well).
  6. Don’t get stuck in the apology loop. Be helpful instead. ( @jetblue gives travel tips.)
  7. Be wary of always pimping your stuff. Your fans will love it. Others will tune out.
  8. Promote your employees’ outside-of-work stories. ( @TheHomeDepot does it well.)
  9. Throw in a few humans, like RichardAtDELLLionelAtDELL, etc.
  10. Talk about non-business, too, like @aaronstrout and @jimstorer.
