Welcome to the first edition of Why I Social Sessions - which will bring you short discussions focused on one-singular topic. This is not your standard Why I Social episode where we learn about a guest - but instead - we focus on important topics impacting the social media space today.

Today, on Why I Social Sessions, guest (and Why I Social alum) Lucy Rendler-Kaplan and I discuss changes happening on Twitter with a focus on #Twitter10k and the misinformation being spread regarding Twitter's big change. 

On Episode 1

1. Twitter changes - are they good or bad?

2. How/what misinformation is being spread about #Twitter10k

3. How will changes to Twitter impact NEW users of the platform? 

Following the conversation:

I'd encourage you to use the hashtag #WISSessions to share your thoughts.

This Week's Question(s): 

  • What do you think about the changes happening to Twitter?
  • Are you for or against Twitter's current evolution?

Derek K Hubbard (@DerekKHubbard) is Social Business Specialist for Southwest Airlines. He is a dynamic and experienced speaker with a proven track record of creating compelling content for social and digital mediums. 

I had the pleasure of meeting Derek in 2015 at the Social Media Strategies Summit in Dallas where we were both speaking. I immediately knew that he'd be a great fit for the show and he does not prove me wrong. His story is a fascinating one and his work is even more impressive. 

This Week on Why I Social, Derek and I discuss:

  • The value of experiencing different cultures 
  • Challenges of social media in the travel business
  • Beyond the noise - using Periscope to create quality content
