I have a friend who’s been trying to figure out all this Social Media stuff on her own for the past year. After talking nothing but Twitter over dinner for a couple of hours, I promised to send her a few tips from one of my favorite people: @ChrisBrogan. Read his blog and follow him, he’s one smart cookie.2 years ago • 0 notes
Ever tried giving your mechanic (with the thick German accent) your vehicle identification number over the phone? You know that code with umpteen letters and numbers in it. How about your mother-in-law the correct spelling of your twitter handle?
My Dad had a simple way of using names that represented letters so the person on the other end of the line could write it down… correctly. But for me, when time time comes I can never remember what they are. Any way, I found some, I’m printing them out and posting them near the phone.
I like the phonetic alphabet used by the old ARRL (American Radio Relay League)
