I'm eating a hearty meal of crow (roasted, with garlic and rosemary) today, since I'm here to tell you how interesting and downright useful I've found Twitter to be since being turned onto it properly at the C4 conference in August. My initial reaction to Twitter was that it was utterly inane, but I was basing my opinion on the public timeline that shows posts from all Twitter users and on the Twittervision service that plots messages from Twitter users on a map of the world (see " Visions of the Sublime and the Inane ," 2007-06-18). Frankly, I put much of the blame on Twitter itself, asking as it does, "What are you doing?" as a way of prompting people to post 140-character messages.

Tim recently posted about Twitter , and it got me thinking I should blog some of my own thoughts on the subject of Twitter (and related services such as Jaiku). Tim’s not the only person to move from tweeting a balanced mix that includes apparently superficial trivia to mainly, or even only, tweeting work or business-related stuff. From my point of view, that’s regrettable.
Besides collecting lists of Social Media Case Studies for my Superlist of Social Media Case Studies , I’ve also been collecting links about Social Media mistakes, failures, blunders and no-no’s. Since my Superlist of Social Media Case Studies has proven so popular (and since Jacob Morgan suggested a Superlist of social media failures would be helpful), I thought I’d take a crack at starting to pull together this type of list (Anti-casestudies?) with the articles I have so far. Have any more case studies lists or good articles/posts on social media mistakes, no-no’s, failures or bad ideas?
