Why Should The Professional Cruise Ship Speaker on Twitter
Twitter is a way for popular people with a large following to stay in touch with their followers.
If a cruise ship lecturer has been on the circuit for a while and has gathered a following, s/he might want to announce via Twitter what’s coming up, where and when?
I can’t imagine the cruise ship speaker having a large following of cruisers.
Seriously, I can’t see the cruising demographic checking their twitter accounts.
Twitter is also an instant media platform. Think Arab uprising. Bombing, Something very newsworthy.
Another viral outbreak! The captain is too close to shore waving goodbye to his friends.
Twitter is a great tool for people who want to keep in touch with a large number of people who want to be kept in touch with.
It doesn’t suit the cruise ship speaker and that demographic.
Besides, there’s no internet access on board in most (all!?) speaking venues. How would listeners tweet sound bites from their speakers? It can’t be done.
The Social Network tools are fascinating for their reach. But for practical use by a cruise ship speaker? There are better alternatives.
