This is the second time I have had the chance to interview an influential Twitter user for our Tweet Café here at Buffer. You can find the previous one with @TweetSmarter here.

It was the first video interview, so please excuse my nervousness at times. I am determined to improve with the next one.

This time I had the chance to chat with Calvin Lee, known as @MayhemStudios. He is an award winning designer, Twitter Power user and a very nice guy.

Cavlin boasts a very large following of over 68,000 followers and is able to use it successfully to find clients for his business. There are a few very valuable lessons he shared with me and I hope you will find them useful too.

 

What have we talked about?

  • What are your Goals on Twitter: Calvin emphasised that you need to enjoy being there and connecting with people. A business purpose is important to have though. Calvin found many clients through Twitter.

 

  • How to be more authentic: Calvin walks us through a few very basic lessons we can do right away to be more personal and authentic.

 

  • Showing transparency: Twitter’s open nature allows you to share many things with your followers. This helps to remain approachable and down to earth. Calvin explains how he does it.

 

  • Will Twitter still be here in 10 years? Calvin shares how stable the platform is in his eyes.

 

 

Big thanks to Calvin for taking the time to discuss these things with me. I found out firsthand that he really is that nice guy everyone is raving about. Be sure to connect with Calvin on Twitter (@MayhemStudios) and learn more about what he does on his site or his personal blog, where he writes about design, tech and Social Media.

Do you have any suggestions on people you would like to learn from that we should interview here? Where could I improve in the future and which areas would you like to have discussed more? Please let me know below about it.
