A while ago, I had my Twitter profile (@HaveANamaste) on my computer screen at my “day job,” and one of my coworkers spied it.
“You have a Twitter?” he asked in a tone that conveyed both disgust and amusement.
“Of course,” I told him. “I’m a freelancer.”“So? Why do you need a Twitter?” Given that this is someone who spends little time in front of a computer outside of work and refuses to join Facebook, it isn’t surprising that he would fail to see the importance of social media for someone who is, at least part-time, self employed. But what amazes me is when this attitude persists among my freelancing colleagues.
