Twitter is like hot yoga It’s a hot mess. But it’s good for you. Fear is rational • • • • • • • • • Privacy, Security Productivity “Controlling the message” Compliance What should I tweet about? What if I say the wrong thing? How do I tweet “professionally”? Who are these people following me? Porn-bots, spammers and evil-doers

Get Used to It Communication is changing. Brevity, casual language and visual aids are valued over wordy, formal communications. “Linksters” think very differently about privacy, freedom of speech and information transparency.

Why Twitter is My Jam 883 Million Users (252 M Active) Active and Inactive Profile Demographics Searchability Monthly U.S. Twitter visitors = 95M Real-Time
