Alguns amigos aderiram agora ao Twitter, e estão sempre a perguntar-me como funciona. Por isso estava a planear escrever um post sobre isso, mas a Amy Gahran antecipou-se .
Iniciados do Twitter, está tudo aqui.
I have some friends that only now have joined Twitter, and they’re always asking me how it works. So, just when i was about to write a post on it, Amy Gahran beat me to it.
Twitter novices, it’s all here.
THE VALUE OF TWITTER
In my experience, Twitter’s biggest payoff is that it allows you to gather a personal posse who can support you in powerful, flexible, speedy ways.
Also, if you’re choosy about the people you follow, Twitter can be quite an effective radar screen for news or relevant issues.
But there are many other potential benefits, especially for journos…
Twitter can help you engage people on a personal level, and to demonstrate your interest in them. This is something that, IMHO, many journalists resist — but that can benefit journos and their work significantly once they loosen up about acting like human beings in a public venue.
Twitter also can help you spread the word about your efforts, driving traffic to online, broadcast, mobile, or print venues — or even live events. Here, the response can be fast!
