And now also Tweeting....

Had I been a venture capitalist a few years back, and, had I entertained a pitch from the folks looking to develop Twitter, then hereís what I would have said (choking back tears of laughter): ĎOK, so let me get this straight, you want to develop this site right, and itís like a blog right, but your big thing, your really, really killer differentiator, is that your going to limit the blogger to Ė what was it again? Oh yeah 140 characters!?!?!......í

I didnít get Twitter. Like I didnít get why someone might not be satisfied with their standard mobile ringtone Ė still donít for that matter. In the end, and solely because a friend twisted my arm with sufficient violence, I signed up for Twitter and started to ĎTweetí.

A couple of months on I probably still donít fully get it, but Iím finding it oddly addictive. Iím not sure from a marketing or promotional standpoint whether it can or canít add value (and thatís not really why I do it anyway), but as a means of accessing a torrent of information from the people you choose to follow (mine include Lance Armstrong and Guy Kawasaki), itís unrivalled.

My own Tweets are an eclectic mix Ė the last 48 hours or so have included Coventry City FC, the M25, Port of Spain, and a bit of CRM, and are probably best branded work in progress. Should you already be tweeting and want to follow, you can find me here.
