Many thanks to Ryan of @boscomedyexamin for the interview and podcast at “Boston Insider BostonTweet” 

Two years ago Tom O’Keefe decided Twitter wasn’t for him and in his own words he “didn’t get it.” One year later, with the economy crashing, he came up with a concept that he believed could work. Now, 7,473 tweets and 11, 736 followers later that concept,BostonTweet, has become a juggernaut for all things fun in Boston.

#BostonIsBetter

October 19, 2009 Leave a comment

Over the weekend I decided to launch a social media experiment that would create worldwide recognition, awareness and a fine display of hometown pride for Boston. So with that I decided to tweet the following at 10:18 am Est Monday October 19 via @BostonTweet

Can we do it? Make #BostonIsBetter a No. 1 trending topic & tell the world why #BostonIsBetter than other US cities.

To my huge surprise it worked! Bostonians are raving about their city, NY is getting upset at us and #BostonIsBetter has become the 5th most popular topic on Twitter in just 6 hours! It cracked the top 10 in under 2 hours.

Ahhh, the power of Twitter.

WFNX – My Song is Better Than Your Song

August 28, 2009 Leave a comment

On Thursday I had the pleasure to be on The Sandbox at WFNX for My Song is Better Than Your Song to compete against Boston mayoral candidate Sam Yoon. My choice, U2’s Bullet the Blue Sky – my all time favorite Edge song where he let’s the guitar, distortion and energy rip through his amp via a bluesy strat.

Sam’s choice was Under Pressure by Queen and Bowie. Being a massive U2 fan in Boston, where U2 fans are plentiful, I thought I would easily secure the votes needed to defeat the unstoppable Sam Yoon. However, once again Sam Yoon won handily with a 2:1 victory over BostonTweet. Even with the loss, my time on WFNX was an absolute blast! After a few minutes of butterflies I was at ease behind the microphone and quickly became addicted to being on the radio.

A very special thanks for the invitation to @SandboxCharlie, @SandboxFletcher and Special Ed (sorry Ed I couldn’t remember your Twitter ID).
