*laughs her head off* We now know as much about the companies we are interested in, as they do about us. And I don’t mean annual reports written for shareholders or marketing information written for consumers.

Twitter are looking at raising funding – around $15m worth (from Gigaom):

Official news of the deal is eventually going to percolate out, and hopefully I will be able to nail down the specifics on who is the lead investor. Valleywag and Silicon Alley Insider had mentioned Spark Capital as a potential investor.

So, as Gigaom mentions, when one of the Twitter staff/gurus, Evan tweets:

The cat is out of the bag, no?

I gone into details on this before so I won’t bore you again: the social network knows your business before you do and your staff are members of social networks too. The curtain is raised, the fourth wall dropped, and we consumers – who were outside – are now looking in. And giggling (in my case) *laughs again*

  1. Aye, there is a superb irony in that the company that brought the always-on, ambient, mobile social network of Twitter to the masses, has their private corporate information tweeted into their own carnivorous social network 🙂

  2. Ok so twitter’s new funding “cat” was let out of the bag albeit a bit sooner than it might have expected. With due respect so what? Does this mean that we have ban twitter from the workplace??? Or are you saying it all too late?

  3. Too late.
