Please, puhleez....can someone follow me on Twitter?
How desperate is that? I am a PR Junkie and I am begging for followers.
The truth is that I just joined. Embarrassing, I know. But hey, lots of Junkies are only discovering Twitter now. They need followers too.
So here is my first impression of the site. At first tweet, the microblogging powerhouse sounds a bit like a cult. Thousands of followers. Online compound. Secret vocabulary (tweet, tweetstream, tweetscan).
But now I realize it’s something you can’t ignore. The possibilities are endless... Companies respond to customers. News outlets issue alerts on breaking news. Communicators network. This is all good stuff.
But for every sensible use of Twitter there seem to be millions of mundane tweets about everyday life, i.e., "I'm putting on my first cup of coffee of the day," or "Looking for tofu in Crawford, Texas."
Who Cares? Do you?
