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 heres what I would have said (choking back tears of laughter): OK, so let me get this straight, you want to develop this site right, and its like a blog right, but your big thing, your really, really killer differentiator, is that your going to limit the blogger to what was it again? Oh yeah 140 characters!?!?!......

I didnt get Twitter. Like I didnt get why someone might not be satisfied with their standard mobile ringtone still dont 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 Tweet.

A couple of months on I probably still dont fully get it, but Im finding it oddly addictive. Im not sure from a marketing or promotional standpoint whether it can or cant add value (and thats 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), its unrivalled.

My own Tweets are an eclectic mix 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.
