A comedian and actor turned social media expert, David Schneider has an impressive knowledge of twitter and other social media outlets and aims to help businesses to develop their social media identities and improve their knowledge.
He imparts lessons on social media from a comedy perspective and uses examples from companies who have used Twitter cleverly, heightening brand awareness and bringing them into the hub of the world of social media. His predominant lesson is that Twitter is real, human and immediate.
David studied modern languages at Oxford University where he also took part in a physical comedy act that contrasted with the trend towards stand-up in live performance comedy in the 1980s.
It was here that David met Armando Iannucci, who recruited him nine years later to star in the news-radio spoof 'On the Hour'. David has also appeared in 'Knowing Me, Knowing You...with Alan Partridge', 'I'm Alan Partridge', and the BBC sitcom 'Gimme Gimme Gimme'.
David is an avid tweeter and has a staggering 150,000 followers; in 2011, he was named 'Tweeter of the Year' by Radio 5 Live. He is also involved in directing TV ads and makes viral comedy videos and pictures for clients including Huffington Post.
He is also writing a book called 'How to Succeed on Twitter; A guide to being funny and interesting in 140 characters or less'.
As a self-confessed internet obsessive, David founded 'That Lot' in 2013, a company which aims to get businesses up and running on social media. The business uses workshops to give companies the confidence to use social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. His extensive knowledge of Twitter means that companies can ask him anything about the social media site and he will be able to help them.
