The Retweetables: Design Team Calls

How can Twitter help you become part of a creative design team? Here's a little story about how I used social media to land a spot on the Glue Dots® Design Team...

About a year ago, I purchased my first smartphone, a BlackBerry, and my Twitter life was forever changed. I was no longer tweeting random messages via text or the occasional 140 character bit from the web, I had UberTwitter on my phone. 

From the palm of my hand, I began connecting with other scrapbookers all over the world and eventually, I saw a tweet from Glue Dots announcing their search for a design team.


I applied (the messy layout above from my A Week in the Life scrapbook shows a rough draft of my application) and now I can call myself a Glue Dots® Dottess. Take it from me, it's possible to find your spot on a design team by being active on Twitter (or by reading this blog post about design team announcements on Twitter).

Are you ready to unleash your creativity? Check out these 8 design team calls that I spotted on Twitter:
Whew! That sounds like a lot of work if you're going to apply for each design team! Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. That's awesome, Juls - You're so very welcome! When I Google myself, I have a few things pop up about me, but mostly links to a drag queen with the same name, LOL!

    Thanks Shawnte and Sue! Sue - Unfortunately I do not have these on a Twitter list. I have a scrapbooking Twitter list, but haven't updated it in a long time.
