Use Twitter as an instant feedback tool on ideas you want to run up the flagpole, on the success or failure of recent meetings, and for grading your performance after a presentation.
Feedback is most useful when presented as close to the time of performance as possible, the authors note in their HBR.org post, Use Twitter to Collect Micro-Feedback. Twitter is not only ideal for giving instant feedback, but its short message-length format encourages participants to think about their response.
Here are three ideas from their post:
- After an all-hands meeting, seek feedback from a few participants. Was it relevant? Did you get the information you needed or expected?
- As your presentation draws to a close, ask your audience to tweet comments on your performance.
- Especially with your millenial employees, supplement quarterly and annual reviews with an "on-demand microfeedback system."
Do you use Twitter or other messaging platforms for professional feedback?
