Twitter Tweet Tweet?


Whilst I've been aware of Twitter for some time, the tweets seem to be getting much louder right now. Yes, I've been to 3 days worth of conferences in 3 weeks, it's true, so it is digital community specific. Having said that, from experience, what begins to gain traction from the digital evangelists (on this scale) tends to soon take off from a broader consumer perspective .

So, I've begun to Twitter myself. I'm all for self application as a means to learn and grow.

My problem is this.....I've got no-one to twitter with! This seems to be at odds with what I'm hearing is happening o/s. One of the Podcast experts I saw present recently said he used Twitter as his primary marketing tool. I logged on to the Ad Age digital site yesterday to find a summary of their latest conference. Apparently, much of the audience 'tweeted' throughout it. They even voted on the best 'tweeter'.

Starcom Australia, the time is here. Please join James and I and get on board! Even if it's just as means of experience at this point...:)

BTW, I go by the very creative Twitter name of.....yvettemayer.

ps if you are wondering what the hell twitter is: Think of the 'is' on facebook and explode it to a social networking community with a sole purpose of ISING all day - keeping their 'friends' up to date on their movements. Enjoy!
