Ok, so I admit that I didn’t really understand Twitter when it came out. It seemed pretty dumb. Well, after playing around with it for the past two weeks, I’ve come to appreciate the unified communication aspect of the platform. You really need to look beyond the guy who tweets, “I’m sitting on couch eating dinner”.
- The SMS Integration works well from a push and pull point of view.
- The Facebook Twitter Application allows my Tweets update my Facebook status that is part of my news feed.
- My Twitter feed is available is RSS while lets me easily put it where ever I want.
- Much easier to write compared to a blog entry
The platform enables quick, easy and broad communication. It reminds me of the unified communication platforms (that have been around for a while) in a nice Web 2.0 box. Let’s see if they can get back the scalability issues.
So, if you have nothing else to do, subscribe to my Twitter feed.
