Time to Blog again, really? Well today I’m pleased to say that due to a genuine sustained interest in our combined Twitter experiences I’ve spent nearly £$€2 of my hard-earned cash on a Twitter client for the trusty iPhone. Boy is that money well spent!
This week you may have spotted that search and Twitter became very popular all of a sudden, probably because of the rather rapidly rising noise level on the service [hesitating to call it a phenomenon here], making it tough to spot worthwhile Tweets, unless of course you have the sort of brain what’s-his-face on The Matrix used to interpret the screen of jumbled numbers and glyphs at its machine-code core.
We’re actually finding Twitter a really useful listening tool at the moment, having a half decent set of search terms in my pocket is proving rather illuminating, it’s a scarily quick way of keeping involved, assuming you have a clue what you are looking for.
Now here’s one for the pub tonight – imagine having to explain to your mum, what a mobile Twitter client is doing when it carries out a search for you and returns a list of matching Tweets – in 140 characters or less.
