As you can clearly see, the first example is an advertisement that would be seen on many different mass media channels. This type of advertisement doesn’t draw the attention of the customer. Instead, it simply lets the customer know that the real estate company exists. Because there is a lack of information and there is nothing to interest the reader, no one will really look at this type of blog post or tweet for long enough to actually grasp any of the information that is passed across. It is okay to use a advertisement of this type of you are simply placing information on a billboard, but for Tweeting or any other type of social media, this type of wordplay will absolutely go against any type of goals that you are trying to reach.
