The Value of Twitter →
Making real connections with people you otherwise would be unable to? That is true, I am discovering that with Twitter right now, but is it sustainable? When does it become overwhelming, just like external emails from customers? Or will that happen? I guess only time will tell. I am just going to enjoy it for now, until something else comes my way (I have almost stopped using Facebook entirely).
