Twitter is amazing…when it’s working! I have had my fair share of visits from the Fail Whale and Twitterpillar, but the benefits of twitter far outweigh the moments of frustration when I can’t connect.
It has been a tremendous help when it comes to
connecting to people with whom I share personal and professional interests. It’s a huge source for general news, tips on the best places to go in the District, links to great social media efforts and updates from every media/pr/marketing conference I could ever think of attending.
I see tremendous value, and it turns out that I am not the only who feels this way. Top Brands have discovered Twitter’s potential and boldly moved into the land of 140 characters.
Paul Dunay, Global Director of Integrated Marketing BearingPoint, Inc. and author of the blog Buzz Marketing for Technology, posted a list of brands and C-level execs brave enough to engage. Listed brands I’m following in include:
- CNN - twitter.com/cnn
- Fast Company - twitter.com/fastcompany
- NY Times - twitter.com/nytimes
- Sprint News - twitter.com/sprintnews
- Pandora - twitter.com/pandora_radio
- and a few more!
