Had lunch yesterday with a friend and colleague, Brian Ernesto from Neoreef which provides website design and hosting. Even better, Neoreef provides websites where you can actually do certain maintenance and modifications by yourself without having to go back thru them! Actually, Brian means so much more to me. He’s also a geek. Maybe even……..an uber geek (smile). Remember Craig’s #1 Rule: You gotta’ have your geeks and you gotta’ keep them close! (smile).
So we met over a the Olive Garden. Yummy lunch! (I took that directly from one of Brian’s old tweets. Found it to be both informative and action provoking (smile)). Being the shameless “user and taker” that I am, I wanted to get Brian’s take on a number of topics………….
Twitter: Brian prefers Twirl over Tweet Deck because he can run multiple accounts out of Twirl. That and for the fact that it has spell check and his spelling sucks (smile). I may have to switch (smile). It is also his feeling that, perhaps, Twitter addresses a different demographic than say LinkedIn. He may be right. However, Twitter will keep your name “top of mind” and create that “buzz”. He further went on to explain a possible reason why I sense that there is so little back and forth interaction on Twitter. For some folks, if they follow a lot of “tweeple”, by the time look at their Twitter “in-box” ………..that Tweet you sent………..it’s been pushed so far down the list that it would take them 1/2 hour to scroll down to it. Makes perfect sense. (more…)
