A company rep is now able to jump right into the conversation and do whatever it takes to solve the problem. However this tweeter had been posting updates while waiting, that it attracted a news crew. Why not post about community events not happening at the library, engage in conversations with patrons, and direct patrons and community members to places on the web that may be of interest to them?

Twitter has so much to offer companies, in fact they are missing out by not having an account. So the three gentlemen realized that it could be used for this like connecting with old friends, or finding out what someone had for lunch.

As Shel puts it in his book, each of us use Twitter in our own unique way, which is why we all have different followers. And despite its size, it still feels like a small town. In fact, Israel appears to have not even looked into situations where Twitter proved limiting or handicapped someone. It even explains why people sometimes really do care what you had for lunch. They were only given small cups of water, and were not allowed to leave the plane.

While I love Facebook, I've never even wanted a Twitter account, considering it pretty stupid. Twitter allows people to interact much the way they do face-to-face, honestly and authentically. Despite the somewhat trite title, this book is really a great view into the making of the Twitter brand and a good primer on successful social media strategies and tactics. Companies no longer have the option of ignoring the conversation.
I had never experienced that kind of connection on Twitter yet. Maybe that applies across-the-board in real life environments too.

There's a reason I don't like the way libraries use Twitter--most of them are using it in ineffective and inefficient ways.

On the contrary, it was Southwest Airlines to the rescue when one of their customers they were following tweeted unhappily about his flight being canceled. You have to pay off a house, buy furniture, make friends and do small odd jobs around town. In this day and time, Twitter has been the fastest growing social media, and will continue to grow at an exponential rate because of the possibilities it offers not only to the individual but to companies small and large. So many people use social media for topics across the board, even when shopping for shoes. Also, it is a good way for customers to be appreciated when they happen to tweet about the positives.
