Paul Helmick on Twitter

As promised in a prior post, “Saving Historical Tweets on my Blog” – here is a full recap of May’s tweets.

  • I use Google Reader to follow a couple hundred bloggers in our industry as well as follow several Twitter lists I’ve curated each day.
  • Most of the items I share relate to Entrepreneurship, Angel/Venture Capital, Internet, News, Social Media, Technology, Business and Personal Productivity.
  • When I find a link or post of interest I quickly star it or mark it as a favorite.  I then have a service like DLVR.IT, TwitterFeed or HootSuite scan my starred items and favorite tweets and post them out ever hour or so throughout the day.
  • I  usually spend about a half hour in the early morning and half hour at night to keep up with industry news and select a few items to share out each day.


 The U.S. has 8.4M millionaires, adding 600,000 last year, up 8%. 2007 was the highest year with 9.4M millionaires.
 Did you know China now has 960,000 millionaires, up almost 10% from last year?
 70% of Facebook’s 500 million users are outside of the U.S. Facebook is banned in China. (officially 0 users)
 Facebook now serves one third of all display ads in the U.S. Twice as many as their closest rival, Yahoo.
 Amazing. Only one half of one percent of Facebook ads are ever clicked on and they still pulled in $2 billion in sales in 2010
