I asked my network on Twitter (hmm a hundred or so followers?) to research how many companies were running tweets to announce news and links, and name them. They told me to not be so cheeky and do my own research…. *grumble* Ah well, a few came through with the goods. Namely Magnetic, JJProjects, NickHodge and gnoll10:
CourierMail Breaking News (QLD)
MelbTransport (mspecht bot that delivers melbourne transport delays to Twitter)
BBC – a gazillion Twitter channels
JJProjects pointed out that in the US some Government politicians tweet, but are there any Aussies?
And no, NickHodge, I’m not mentioning Neil Finn.
One way of thinking about Twitter – and trust me, there are as many versions of Twitter as there are people – is as a sort of RSS reader integrated with your buddies bits of news. I like getting the headlines from ABC in amongst silliness from Cybner and PlasmaEgg and the others.
Most of the industry leaders seem to throw out tinyurls to articles of interest every few minutes. Which is so not me. But I’m glad they do it!
Anyway, you lazy so-and-so’s, any others I’ve missed?
EDIT: I forgot HatchThat, Entrepreneurial conversations delivered to your inbox every Wednesday.
