This is the year of Twitter, or at least the year I decided to join the ranks of Twitterers.
So far so good. I signed up, and the next day (today) someone on the DC Web Women’s elist asked if we wanted to network together on Twitter. So, I went from no following, no followers to following 64 and being followed by 27 in one day.
I haven’t played with Twitter enough yet to have formed definite opinions. I can say that it’s really easy to network with a lot of people at once, once you have a network. I learned about a few events, articles, conferences, services quickly and painlessly. I look forward to sharing ideas, links, events, etc. with my network.
Among others I began to follow Mr. Tweet, and saw a post called Twitter to Go which is an sweet story about a coffee shop that began by chance to use Twitter for take out orders. The punch line is that they doubled their clientele simply due to word of mouth on Twitter. The possibilities for this kind of viral marketing are boundless.
If this sounds like gibberish to you, it might be time to give Twitter a try. At least that’s what I’m doing. You can find me here: @eDesignGal
