Phrasee’s phavorite marketing tweets of the month: June 2017
June is the peak of every year’s arch.
It’s the hump month!
Yes, as far as 2017 is concerned, it’s all downhill from here.
Which is weird, if you think about it.
So we here at Phrasee try not to!
Instead, we focus our attention as much as possible on the wild and wonderful tweets of the email marketing world, where everything stays basically the same, and presumably always will.
Sure, we may have added a few new members (like Jenn Clauss and Andy Thorpe) to the illustrious “Who to follow” club. And sure, many members of the once dynamic #emailgeeks Twitter community may have flown the coop for greener digital pastures (Damn you, Slack!).
But some of us are still here (and not just because our application to join the Emailgeeks Slack group was mysteriously never accepted).
For those of us left behind by the relentless march of digital technological progress and the bitter winds of exclusionism, there will always be Twitter.
So, with that in mind, here are 10 reasons we still prefer to keep abreast of the email marketing world’s comings and goings on this much maligned platform…

Reason #1: Watching our fellows get dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood…
I’ve taken my daughter to a kids party.
It’s a disco.
This is my nightmare.

I email you because you make social interaction awkward.

Reason #6: Being inspired by people who REALLY love this job:
Husband, looking @ my screen & sees code: Are you working?
Me: No, I’m looking up CSS transitions for fun.
How did I get here?

P.S. Accepted application or no, we know what’s really going on on Slack.
So tweet on, fellow social media orphans. It’s only a matter of time until they all come crawling back to Twitter, where they belong. Until then, we’ll be watching, and we’ll see you all in July!
