“If I only knew this a few years ago.” What if you could share that advice with the world? Now, anyone in the world can add a “what I wish I knew then” tweet to public Twitter account, @AYoungerMe.
The founders of Buffer are at it again, this time with an experiment to crowdsource advice. Not just any advice, the kind of advice you wish your “younger self” would have known.
How? It only takes one email. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and anything in the subject line and is under 140 characters will be your Tweet.
In case you’re more of a visual person, it looks something like this:
After you click send, your email gets added to a queue in a Buffer account for this experiment. Every hour a new tweet from the queue is posted to Twitter. Pretty cool, as long as no knuckleheads try to hijack it and ruin it for the rest of us.
Remember the, “Milk, it does a body good,” ad campaigns of the early 90′s? It showed young, scrawny, often “nerd-like” adolescents watching themselves turn into athletic, popular and beautiful adults (all from drinking milk). The @AYoungerMe experiment makes up for having to watch those (if you’re a child of the 90′s like I am).
What was your advice?
