Twitter & LinkedIn: How I Learned to Stop Procrastinating & Embrace Social Media

  • Aug 2, 2011 · 9:30 AM
  • Valencia Gardens

We all know the importance of Twitter and LinkedIn in our job searches, but for one reason or another, many of us have avoided learning them. Yes, you can spend several hours each day meandering through pages and hashtags... or you can learn to use them to your advantage.


SFPCN's own Julie Miller will introduce you to both platforms, show you how to set up accounts, and give you some tips on using both efficiently. She will also answer your specific questions about Twitter and LinkedIn, so come prepared to ask.

Julie Miller began her career in the book publishing industry, learning the nuts and bolts of marketing and PR at one of the region's favorite publishers, Heyday. She has since worked at Publishers Group West, Down There Press, and Apress. As a member of the events crew at Cody's Books, she had the amazing fortune to work with Peter Jennings, Neil Gaiman, President Bill Clinton, John Hodgman, Luis Alberto Urrea, Barbara Kingsolver, Barbara Ehrenreich, and hundreds of other awesome authors. A long time volunteer and board member of the Northern California Book Publicity and Marketing Association, Julie has also contributed her time and knowledge to TEDxBerkeley, TEDxMarin, and She's Geeky. Since 2010, she has consulted with a variety of clients within the book, technology, and fitness industries on all things marketing, conference creation, public relations, and social media.

Program Schedule  

The doors open at 9:00 a.m. and the program begins at  9:30 a.m. sharp and will run 1.5 hours. We must leave the community room by 11 a.m.

    Julie did a great job explaining Twitter and giving examples of tweets and ways to work with Twitter. Julie's explanations were clear and concise. She had real world experiences to back up her teaching and how her usage of Twitter has changed over time. Bravo, Julie!

    Great intro. We could easily benefit from a followup session on Twitter/LinkedIn, too.

    Julie gave a great presentation on Twitter, fast becoming THE social media site with which to connect, or at least in my opinion. Julie knows her stuff in a social media milieu that is rapidly changing and evolving and I'm delighted I attended yesterday's presentation. Looking forward to Julie's next big thing....presentation, work, career move or whatever. She's got my full support!

    well rounded presentation on twitter. from starting basics to helpful tips, to how to follow and how to be followed. it was personal and professional. there was no time for linkedin, which was fine! focusing on twitter provided plenty of material.

    Julie Miller is a member of our SFPCN community and enriched our informational hub with her program on Twitter. My three takeaways were: Find your thought leaders and follow them; Twitter has a dashboard just for Macs; and Lists will filter and segment inbound tweets into rational groups you can use. Thank you, Julie, for preparing and presenting the program!
