Los Angeles, CA, 18, March 2016: Mohr Publicity, a top rated social media promotions company celebrating nearly 20 years in business, sends Twitter and it’s founder Jack Dorsey a big Happy Birthday wish. Ten years ago, on March 21, 2006, a software developer in his late 20’s tapped out a simple short message. Dorsey’s first message was: “just setting up my twttr”. It was the very first tweet of all time on the social media service that came to be officially called Twitter. Reports say that original founders agreed on the name after rejecting the names “Status”, “Smssy” and “Friendstalker”.
In early 2007, Twitter users were sending about 5,000 tweets per day. By 2013, it was 500 million a day. Nobody really knows what the statistics are for the current year, but it may be 10 times that amount or more by some estimates. “Today Twitter does not report on how many messages go out each day,” said Sandra Mohr of Mohr Publicity. “But we have some clients with our PR firm who get 5000 ReTweets per day on one posted message, so the number must be astronomical.”
Much of Mohr Publicity’s success in the public relations business is due to the immediate results one sees when sharing a message via Twitter. With short, 140 character messages, the medium appeals to the slightly ADD cyber generation. NEWS of the world travels in milliseconds, and hot topics can gain millions of views at zero cost.
Things move fast on Twitter. In October 2015, Dorsey - after spending years on the sidelines after a boardroom coup in 2008 - was brought back as Twitter’s chief executive officer. The company hopes to improve their stock price and remain viable in a world filled with competitors like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and YouTube. It also faces an important aspect of its own identity. Should it remain a simple communication tool, or branch out into multi media platforms heavy on advertising?
“Most of the Twitter sites we promote for new followers are using Twitter for business,” says Mohr Publicity. “Although it’s fun to use, the addictive part of Twitter is in seeing your page grow and watching people discover your company.”
Mohr Publicity, a modern-day Internet PR company catering to promotions on all major social media websites, experienced a huge surge in clients when their technical staff found a way to promote Tweets with (#) hashtags. The hashtag was first introduced by Twitter in 2007, but it took some time to catch on. Mohr Publicity posted a short video called What are #Hashtags and How Do I Use Them? to help educate people about using #hashtags and their client base began to immediately benefit from the knowledge.
Twitter went public on the stock market in 2013 but stock prices have performed poorly by most analyst standards. The stock climbed to a high of about $69 per share initially, but have steadily declined over the years and currently trade at well under $20/share. This might be a good time for Twitter corporate to hire a firm like Mohr Publicity for a shot of good PR.
