Tweeting since January 2010
Cannon Hodge, social media manager for Bergdorf Goodman, posts as many as 30 messages a day, despite her admission on Twitter that “typing is the death of any mani.” With 140-character comments on the weather, style, beauty wisdom and, yes, new merchandise, Ms. Hodge, 28, has helped usher a 110-year-old department store famed for its snooty air and imposing facade into a less-intimidating milieu.
“People really need to know how to tie a turban out of a Hermès scarf,” she said in a telephone interview. “I can tweet that.”
When Fashion Week begins on Thursday, Ms. Hodge will broadcast from the runways, starting with a Twitpic of Linda Fargo, Bergdorf’s fashion director, whose outfit was selected through a contest, promoted on Twitter, that drew 5,368 entries. Below, a few of @bergdorfs posts from last week.
