This month we had a bunch of wonderful people interview for new jobs at BuzzFarmers. Most recently I asked our top candidates to submit three writing samples (paid, thankyouverymuch), one of which where the topic was Twitter. As you might know, I run the Twitter.About.com site, and thought this would be a good chance to test their content on a real live platform while learning more about the writer.
Happy month, my friends! As you might know, I manage Twitter.About.com for About.com. As usual, I kept SEO in mind which made the topics a little whacky. You’d be really surprised to know how many people search for “arianna grande twitter,” for example. Tens of thousands of people every month. And the competition, in comparison, is ridiculously low.

I feel like a lot has happened in the world of Twitter this month. As you know, I manage Twitter. About.com and every month I write a little post here going over some of the stuff we published this month.
First off, I opened a Scottrade account this month, literally the morning that Twitter was going public. Pat reminded me and I frantically opened an account and deposited $500. It actually turned out to be kind of a dumb move because as I’ve learned, you’re supposed to wait for the stock to drop before you buy. And it hasn’t dropped. Basically, you wait until the stock drops, and you buy when it’s coming back up again. I’m a total noob to this, so I’d like to thank Patrick a thousand times for his help with the Twitter IPO article which came out so much more intelligent than what I could have written on my own. I learned a lot.
Happy October! This month in New England it’s all about pumpkins, apple cider and sweaters! And here at BuzzFarmers it’s about social media every month, so let’s get into it!
Each month I put together a bunch of blog posts about Twitter for About.com and write a blog post about them here. This month I though I’d add a little value by posting about some of the biggest news stories about Twitter too. So, y’know, we can all keep updated. More on that later.

First and foremost, let’s talk about the new articles up on About. You know I’m loving on the Twitter Chats lately, so I surveyed my followers and elsewhere for everybody’s favorite Twitter chats. #SEOChat was recommended by three separate people, making it a favorite.
