Is Twitter a marketer's dream (see: Dogfish Head / Red Cross faux pas gone good)? Will it bring peace to the Middle East (or at least democratic governments)? Will it eclipse Facebook? Will I succumb to the machine and 'follow' Justin Bieber?
Because these questions are being asked (all but the last one, really), I feel I need to be in on it, at least enough to talk about it at the watercooler. Sheesh, I think i just stumbled upon my life philosophy. Be in on "it" enough to be able to talk about it, or enjoy it with friends, but not enough to pay for your college or land you an awesome job. Hm, this self-illuminating moment brought to you by Blogger. And Twitter. #secrettobeingeasytotalktoatpartiesbutnevermakethecoverofTimemagazine
So, Twitter is interesting. My lineup of....er...followees is intersting. Not sure what it says about me, but I'm sure some marketing exec knows exactly what it says about me, and good for her because I don't care. I just want to know what Ellen, Conan, Vanessa Hine, Stuart Holden, Carlos Bocanegra, Thomas Friedman (never posts), Johnny Wier, SportsNation, Kim Clijsters, my sister and a few others have to say about the world. And gosh that @stuholden has a lot to say about the world. And he posts cute pics! And lots of these: :-) !!!! (I've decided that his twitter persona is as 110mph as his onfield presence. And that's a good thing.
P.S. Add me. You won't be sorry. (but you may not be impressed). @kwittgens
