I’m amidst a flourishing love affair – an affair that is neither typical nor traditional. My feathered friend and I embarked upon our fiendish tryst almost a year ago. Similarly to most new relationships, we only saw each other once a week or so, but as time progressed we had to see each other every two, three, four, sometimes even five times a day.
I had ceremoniously fallen in love with Twitter, and who could blame me – that is one awesome bird. Okay, seriously though Twitter has revolutionized the way people communicate, access breaking news and information, do business, and some may even say win campaigns.
Twitter has revolutionized the way professionals go about conducting internal PR according to World Stream Internet Marketing Blog.They say that Twitter could be a great way to boost employee morale and better inter-office communications. For example, whoever discovers the doughnuts in the break room tweets about it, and then everyone else catches on. Sure, that is a fun example, but what about more serious applications, such as notifying employees of severe weather, a change in policy, or completion of a project? They recommend that this not be a vehicle to make employees “warm and fuzzy” about the company, but yet a way to hasten important information.

Like I said above, I’m in LOVE! That is one amazing bird . . .
