It is one thing to write a bio that tells me about what you do, but an entirely different thing to make it funny and entertaining at the same time too.
Because I am so bad at writing a creative bio myself, I thought of sharing some great ones that I came across with you instead. It certainly motivated me to have a go at my own bio soon. I am sure I can learn a thing or two from these awesome tweeps.
1.) @JamieCrager a Serial Chips and Salsa Eater
I absolutely love Jamie’s bio. His opening sentence makes it immediately clear to me that he is someone you will have fun with. It is fantastic to see that Jamie puts his human interests first before he follows up with the business side of things. The fact that he was voted best Social Media consultant in Omaha for 2011 made following a no brainer.
2.) @MayhemStudios is a Self Proclaimed Media Ho
Calvin Lee’s bio is a very attention grabbing piece. The humble way he expresses his interest in Social Media made me laugh for sure. The personal insight following what he is up to in his spare time isn’t any less impressive. Oh and if even Chris Brogan says he is a nice guy, I couldn’t go wrong getting his tweets into my stream – followed.
3.) @JuliaRosien is a Life Traveler
When I recently came across Julia’s bio I could literally see her positivity jumping off the stream. And not just because it says “Positivity Engager”. In general I found that the word combinations in her bio were both very funny and also informative. The super friendly pic and Twitter background made me check out more of what she is up to immediately.
4.) @Brasonja – as sincere and curious as it gets
Although I have known Boris for a little while, it was only today after a little confusion on my side that I started to pay closer attention to his bio. What I love is his description starting out with Boris’ personality. The combination of being sincere, friendly, curious and ambitious with a concise list of interests following made me want to have him in my timeline.
5.) @MelissaOnline is a true Passionista
A recent fantastic addition to my timeline was Melissa Stewart. What made me follow in the first place was definitely her great bio. The creative way in which she plays with words and relates them to her passion for entrepreneurship made me think, smile and follow of course.
6.) @JanKovitch is many things
Jan’s bio boasts an incredible collection of what he is up to. What makes it fun is the fact that you can connect each adjective with one of the nouns, which extends the content of his bio dramatically. Overall I was just amazed by the many combinations you could come up with. I am not even sure if we can assume he is now universally happy or just universal and happy.
7.) @TechZader is a Life Liver
Another bio that caught my attention is Chris Luzader’s. Even though rather vague, he emphasizes his interest in technology with a seriously smart use of words. As he sprinkles it with Latin wisdom it was clear that I wanted to follow, not least because he is someone trying to make a difference.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think a Twitter bio is obviously just one thing that is important for a successful Twitter presence. With these 7 examples, I just wanted to show you some which I was seriously impressed by.
Have you come across any great Twitter bios lately? Do you think it is important what we write in our bios?
