sound bite era
Of course Twitter was going to come up with a smart way to innovate AND satisfy customer demand, Twitblogs! Now, you don't have to limit yourself to 140 characters and you can add images, etc. Well, it's certainly a good thing for those of us who like using this social platform to extend our client's causes BUT I kind of liked the short, "must think concisely" older version. Nostalgia. It's getting so 5 minutes ago, isn't it?
Anyway, ok I haven't tweeted for a while, and I have my reasons (going to get back on the train today!) but my laziness aside I like the tightness of the medium BECAUSE it makes you THINK. How can I express something in a meaningful way with just a few words? Yes, we are children (or parents) of the sound bite era so we should be used to this type of short format. But I think most of us found it surprisingly fun, if not a challenge.
Our agency will certainly use this new opp for clients. I will try to get my act together and tweet more regularly. Gosh, there's always something to do, isn't there? LOL!
