Yes…I’m a bit of a social media geek and I work with a bunch of social media geeks too.
The team understands that social media is about people. It’s about creating and maintaining individual connections. It’s about learning about someone and making a difference in their life. And one of the ways the team practices what they preach is by celebrating the important events in each others’ lives. Weddings, promotions, and…of course…birthdays. In fact, a tradition with my team is what is often known as “cube-bombing” or “cube-wars”. It’s a practice of decorating a co-worker’s cube or office in a unique way.
This year, I got a Twitter cage, complete with a nest, eggs, perch, tweets, and LOTS and LOTS of feathers. Check out the photos.
Oh yeah, if you want some cool birthday ideas for the social media geek in your life, think about a Twitter cake or some yummy Twitter cookies (these cookies were courtesy of @Ms_Nene at the Kansas City-based Takes The Cake Bakery)
