Gischeleman: "To Create With the Mind"

Jeremiah Owyang makes Twitter go nuclear

I mean that in the best possible way. Yesterday, Jeremiah Owyang of Forrester Research, in a post about the microblogging service Twitter, invited people to leave their Twitter ID in comments in an attempt to connect as many people as possible.

Boy howdy, did he succeed! More than 300 comments later, I personally have over 120 more people following me in my Twitter network. Why is that important to me? It will come as no surprise to those who know me that I have more people following my twitter posts than my blog. No big deal, Twitter suits the “spur of the moment” way my brain often works. Quick messages, comments on what’s going on, questions, thoughts, observations. It all combines to make a nice stream of thought; even more so, combined with my entire network.

So, what a day– I am looking forward to more enlivening conversations going forward. Thanks Jeremiah– great idea to connect like-minded people!

So, am I a social media addict? Ask Jeff Sass:

    It would appear that way. Switch the letters around and you get “dealer.”
