Peter, Robert and I experimented with Twitter but it didn’t work out for us. Maybe that was because the desktop applications we had downloaded to get tweets didn’t seem to work that well.

I know some people utilise Twitter brilliantly. One guy at the Web Directions conference boasted he got his last $100k of business using it.

I logged on during the US presidential debates and watched opinion flowing. But truthfully, I found my brief Twitter experience a precursor to a Bex (Becks?) and a good lie down.

Perhaps it’s because I’m not really interested in minutiae, i.e friends in Facebook with lame status updates “xyz is having dinner.” My understanding is that tweets are predominantly along these lines, although I may be wrong.

I’m off to read your article now, Eric!
