Twitter In Field and In Stream
A few years ago I was with a client who asked me: Do you Twitter? If I had not been attending a digital marketing conference, I probably would have cleared my throat and turned a shade of magenta. Back then Twitter was cutting edge, which meant about five people used the service, no doubt one of them was the developer. Today, however, Twitter is mainstream. What is Twitter you say? It's a free social networking service that’s a lot like blogging and public instant messages limited to 140 characters. User do it walking to the deli: Got salami in mind, maybe ham? So again you ask, what does a "tweets" (that’s what the message is called) have to do with hunting? The AZ Game and Fish Department is using Twitter. You can follow the department and its activities at @azgfd or at http://twitter.com/azgfd. Want to know what Remington is up to? They have a Twitter address as well. Maybe they can tell me where the woodcock are hiding instead of trying to sell me a new shotgun? Maybe I'll send my buddies a Tweet to tell them where the tweets and clucks are hiding? Maybe they'll just think I'm a twit. Here's what I really think of Twitter.
