Twitter is one of the best micro-blogging service that allows users to send and receive other user's updates. Personally I feel Twitter is a valuable and the easiest service to update your friends on your current status. Can Twitter also be a valuable tool for business?
ComputerWorld's article on Twitter for business focuses on how businesses can make use of this 'micro-blogging' service effectively.
Deciding whether to use or not to use Twitter for your business is totally acceptable and thus deciding what your purpose is very important. One of the cool things in Twitter is, you can 'follow' people you like and you will receive all their updates. Following right people becomes an integral part, as following your customers, clients, colleagues and thought leaders in your field not only shows that you want to hear what they have to say but it also encourages them to follow you, and it lets them contact you privately if they choose.
The article is worth a read if you are planning to use twitter now or in the near future for your business!
If you haven't started tweeting yet, why not try now? ;)
