More Twittering about Twitter

My collegue Allison sent me the following aricle, which in turn sent me to another article (I love that!) talking about how people are adapting Twitter for professional use.

The first, from iMedia Connection, is a 5-section article talking about the all-encompassing Twitter experience. The second, http://www.901am.com/2007/the-top-5-ways-smart-people-use-twitter.html, from the media-centric 9:01am Blog, focuses on the ways people are using Twitter for business communications.

Great articles both.

The Twitter Debate

Posted in Online Productivity, Social Networking, Twitter by jquig99 on March 19, 2007

I’ve been on Twitter for a few months now and am really enjoying it. It’s a different kind of social networking app that has you answering (and texting, posting, etc.) the answer to the question “What are you doing right now?”. I have found it a great resource in finding like-minded people in the Apple and GTD set. A lot of people find it a great waste of time.

Earlier this week, Mat Balez wrote a post predicting Twitter’s “imminent supernova-like implosion”. I think that that’s a bit premature. Twitter’s had a HUGE growth spurt in the last few months and I feel it will continue as it penetrates past the early-adopter stage.

I’m also looking for ways to apply Twitter to my professional life. This post, from Web Worker Daily is a great start.
