There are many people on Twitter that influence others on the topic of social media. One of them and my personal favorite is Daniel Tosh, commonly known after his hit television show on Comedy Central, Tosh.O.
I consider Tosh an influencer because he pushes the limits of tension among society with videos that most people would think twice about airing. He uses humor and audience participation to shape the content of his show and outreach.
Another aspect Tosh does well is engage with his twitter followers. With over seven million followers and a Klout score of 85, he stays busy. He encourages his followers to tweet him and the tweets he likes he shares on his weekly show. Additionally given his amount of quality followers he asks his them to tweet using a particular hashtag. In most cases what ever he asked them to hashtag starts to trend right away. He has the power to influence us.
I would engage with Tosh in a few ways. One way would be to submit videos to him of things that I have done or things that I have come across while on the Internet. In doing this I get a chance to add to the show and be directly engaged in trending topics.
I would also engage Tosh regarding his upcoming comedy tour. While he is known as a comedian, most of his material for his jokes is found on the Internet. Engaging with him regarding his upcoming tour could allow you to learn more on the details, thus increasing attendance, but also could lead to your ideas being worked into a skit or something.
Whether you think he is funny or not, he has proven himself to be an influential individual within the social media realm. So next time you are looking for something to watch or search check out Tosh.O. I am sure you will have a laugh and who knows, maybe be a part of a new trending topic?
