The 3 Keys to Twitter 76. James AndrewsVice President/Director Ketchum Interactive 77. Source: http://shankman.com/be-careful-what-you-post/ 78. 79. A hazard of social networking is people will read what you write. 80. everyone participating in todays event, including those in the auditorium with you this morning, just received their first paycheck of 2009 containing a 5% pay cut 81. with all due respect, to continue the context of your post; true confession: many of my peers and I dont see much relevance between your presentation this morning and the work we do in Employee Communications. 82. Two days ago I made a comment on Twitter that was an emotional response to a run in I had with an intolerant individual. Source: http://www.thekeyinfluencer.com/channel/2009/01/16/twittersituation/ 83. Everyone knows that at 140 characters, Twitter does not allow for context.... 84. My most recent situation underscores the need for important dialogue around how we use this space. 85. 86. 87. Cisco Fatty 88. "Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work. @theconnor via Twitter 89. 90. 91. 92. www.ciscofatty.com 93. I have 45 friends. I know all of them. They know me. 95% of them have lived in a dorm or house with me. I practically cant offend them, although I sometimes try. Source: http://www.theconnor.net/ 94. Time Levad and @timmylevadare two different people. 95. Am @I more of a mass-media channel than a human being? Do @I act as such? 96. For people who knew nothing more of me than that 140 characters of text Id written, it would be ridiculous for me to be angry with anyone misinterpreting what I said. 97.
