I'm constantly amazed at how under-appreciated Twitter is as a relationship-building platform.
At Social Media Marketing World 2018 in San Diego, I earned the title of the event's No. 1 Twitter influencer. This distinction comes with no crown, no official prize, and no substantive fanfare – but I can assure you there is plenty of residual value to be had from that experience.
We all know that social media can be an extraordinary time-suck. Heck, I still spend way too much time sitting around watching Instagram Stories content, Snapchat stories, etc. …
But social media at its best – and especially Twitter – gives us an unprecedented opportunity to connect with the people that we need the most – whether it's prospective clients, successful industry leaders, conference organizers, or even just those with whom we share a passion and/or emotional connection.
All the answers are right there in front of you – and this document is going to walk you through exactly how I've mastered it.

In the summer of 2015, Chris visited all 50 U.S. states in 100 days, volunteering with different youth-related nonprofit and community organizations, and using live-streaming and Snapchat to share their stories.
