All aTwitter!

Quick: What do these three people have in common? The Pope, Bill Gates, and Oprah! Answer: They all use Twitter.

I have written before (See 9/28/09) about this interesting social media tool. Some say the jury is still out as to whether Twitter is a fad or really a new way of communicating. We have all observed how remarkable events have unfolded with this device. The earthquake in Haiti is just one example. An educational forum in Colorado is another.

I use it to send weekly writing tips: TWIPS. I do think a discussion with your team is crucial in determining how you will utilize it. Marketing? Selling? Advice? Factoids? News? Education?
Ragan.com had an interesting article on twitter you might enjoy. Titled: Twitter’s 10 Commandments by John Saddington.
So, how are you using Twitter as part of your business practices?
