@biggreenpen You could say something like, "I'm pinning to win a great, big prize!" I'm pinning to win an olive oil mister with my name on it!

@JoeCardillo The interesting thing about this is I'll bet Alex isn't a communicator by trade. He just knows how to get something done with human beings.

@CarrieMorgan Hey @belllindsay, can you send Carrie the pitch you just got that you loved?

@LauraPetrolino I wonder if the common sense rule is missing because so many of us learn media relations this way when we graduate from college? I know some of the things I did early in my career would make me cringe now.

@jccarcamo I think that's relevant to every industry. What if you're working with a colleague and not a journalist and behave that way? Bad form.

@CarrieMorgan Or worse, an email sent to everyone in the TO field. This just happened to me and people were replying all. I wanted to kill someone.

@JRHalloran @Howie Goldfarb That's a good point. It's hard to take him seriously when he's being serious.

@Howie Goldfarb @Betsy Brand Part of it is because they're under immense pressure to just get it out. And part of it is because junior professionals are pitching and don't know any better. Their bosses are tell them to do it this way.

@Betsy Brand It's kind of like the guest post that ran here yesterday about complaining on the social networks. It's so easy to hit the tweet button and not go through the trouble of having a conversation first.

@Howie Goldfarb @ClayMorgan They're almost finished with year two and their results are incredible. Their target audience is not you or me. They know exactly who they're targeting and what appeals to those people...and they're getting them to attend races.
