If you're as pro-Twitter as I am, you've probably heard a lot of your Twitter-hater friends give some pretty crazy excuses for why they won't use Twitter. I myself have some particularly close friends who simply refuse to Tweet - and they're always making excuses for why they won't do it. Luckily I've invested a lot of time and energy into arguing with them - so you don't have to. Check out these five worst excuses for not using Twitter , along with some snappy comebacks you can throw back at them: "I don't use Twitter because I don't have anything to say." "I don't use Twitter because you can't say anything meaningful in 140 characters."
Credible case studies or examples of how people in organizations successfully use social communication channels like Twitter to connect and engage with customers are gold dust to anyone looking to make a case in their own organization. We know how Dell can make money out of Twitter – $6.5 million so far, they say. It’s a terrific case study. Yet such an achievement can not only seem out of reach for many organizations, but also not necessarily reflecting their goals which may not be about making money directly from their Twitter activity.
This may not be a sign of a potential economic upswing, but it's surprisingly positive financial info nonetheless: Twitter is profitable all of a sudden. And it's all thanks to Google. For months the way Twitter works financially has been a bit of a mystery since its amazing popularity would've launched it into some profit-making scheme much sooner, or so the Web had thought. But Biz Stone repeatedly denied Twitter would be moving into a Web-advertising mode--which would have seemed the easiest way for Twitter to earn cash--and has been touting business extras like analytic tools as Twitter's road to profitability, over the long term.
After a particularly trying weekend moderating the Macworld forums, it occurred to me that there are a handful of ways to become an Internet pariah in a very short period of time. In the hope that you might not fall into some of these traps, allow me to enumerate those ways. 1.
Twitter's search deals will help it achieve a small profit for 2009, Spencer Ante at Bloomberg-BusinessWeek reports . Two sources familiar with company's finances say it received $25 million for its search deals with Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT). Google paid $15 million, and Microsoft paid $10 million. That's enough for Twitter to earn a small profit this year.
La stratégie digitale ressemble un peu à la quête du Graal et de nombreuses agences se positionnent afin d'expliquer qu'elles sont sans doute les mieux placer pour accompagner les annonceurs. Je peux comprendre ce mouvement tant Internet n'est pas qu'un média supplémentaire mais qu'il modifie aussi la relation du consommateur aux autres médias et, par ailleurs, ne se cantonne pas à la communication mais intervient à tous les niveaux de l'entreprise. l'implication de cette évolution est tout simplement que les agences doivent se repenser et se repositionner.
Les interfaces tactiles multipoint seront-elle LA grande tendance technologique pour 2010 ? On peut le penser en voyant se généraliser les annonces des fabricants d’écrans, de laptops et netbooks… Démocratisé par l’iPhone, l’ interface tactile multitouch arrive sur Windows avec Windows 7 , mais Linux est en train de s’y mettre aussi (et c’est tant mieux !).
Posted by Shakthi on December 4, 2009 in Twitter | ∞ Ever wondered what twitter considers spam ? Well here is a list to start with If you have followed a large amount of users in a short amount of time;
And then there was the name. Twitter. In the pantheon of digital nomenclature — brands within a sector of the economy that grew so fast that all the sensible names were quickly taken — it would be hard to come up with a noun more trite than Twitter. It impugns itself, promising something slight and inconsequential, yet another way to make hours disappear and have nothing to show for it. And just in case the noun is not sufficiently indicting, the verb, “to tweet” is even more embarrassing. Beyond the dippy lingo, the idea that something intelligent, something worthy of mindshare, might occur in the space of 140 characters — Twitter’s parameters were set by what would fit in a text message on a phone — seems unlikely.
With its 140 character limit, Twitter is all about brevity . But if you think the same shouldn’t apply for a job application, well then, “you’re done.” This Craigslist job listing has some interesting rules, to say the least. While the eye-grabbing headline is asking for a “Twitter Genius” in Greenwich Village, the actual role is an “expert” social media marketer for some sort of e-commerce startup. “ I need someone who tweets in their sleep and updates their fb status before calling their mom on Mother’s Day ,” the description reads. And it gets better.
