Over the past two weeks, as I met with two separate clients, they asked me, “What is Twitter?”
I told them that for me it is a network of colleagues and friends. A little business mixed with pleasure.
Twitter is certainly much more than its, “What are you doing now?” tagline might suggest.
But that said, I thought it was better to show than to tell, so I fired up Twitter on my Treo and asked:
“Just showing a few corporate types who have never seen Twitter, any words for them?”

Thanks to my friends on Twitter for really making this experiment fly. The clients and corporate communication types that you communicated with are psyched and I am more the believer in the value of Twitter.
For the rest of you, if you haven't at least looked into it, I suggest you do it and see how it enhances your overall knowledge.
