Words in the air vs. online May 1, 2009Posted by Edwin Ritter in Grab Bag, Trends.
Seems like everyone has thoughts on the Social Media phenomena. One of my thoughts is that tweets are the online equivalent of what you discuss at the office water cooler.
Haven’t you heard? C’mon, you know what I mean. Those brief, casual exchanges with colleagues about what is top of mind. A way to stay connected. Maybe, it leads to more discussion or sparks a new idea, answers a question even. I have seen those done on Twitter and more.
The difference is that instead of words in the air, now there are in the ether and will remain. You may not remember what you said last week at the water cooler.
But, Twitter does and you or anyone else can look it up. Whether it’s Twitter or FaceBook or some other Social Media tool, they all provide a way to stay connected and current in a virtual sense.
So, when someone asks you ‘What would I Tweet about’? Tell them the same things they would say while getting a drink of water. At least, that’s what I saw online. Why, what did you hear?
