Can I ask you a question?

Today on twitter, all of my posts or "tweets" will be questions. This is because every public relations social media session/conference/thing I have ever been to says that the first step to engaging in SM is "listening." I feel like I never started on twitter, or facebook for that matter, with listening. And everyone knows that to not creep people out and to show them that you're listening (and that you're in the room...) you ask questions. Asking questions does three things:
  1. Hints at your thought process
  2. Allows others to clarify statements
  3. Helps you remember what was said
Anyone who is an effective listener has to ask questions. So today, I am. On twitter.
