Jeremiah Owyang has lit or should I say twit a firestorm of conversation and engagement with this post and this tweet to illustrate both the explosive potential and power of Twitter (presence applications) as a powerful conversational and communal "tool"
341 comments (and counting) says a LOT. When is the last blog post you saw garner this kind of response? It's a great UNM2PNM organic case study...
You can find me on Twitter here - add me and I will add you back.
Update 1: This defeats the purpose (as I'm blogging this), but I tried out an experiment on Twitter itself which was to see how quickly I could hit the 1,000 person follower mark. Based on a tweet on 2/18 at 3.43pm, I decided (thanks to @BarbaraKB) to give away 1 hour of consulting/conversation time to my 1,000th follower. That was when I had 900 followers. I currently have 935
Update 2: So...I got "Owyanged". Jeremiah tweeted about this and the floodgates opened up. I now have 1,034 followers and I belive that @DHotchkiss is my 1,000th follower and therefore, gets an hour of my time.
HANDS DOWN, twitter beat blogging as a means to activate immediate response/impact.
Now I have to think about how to one-up this. What about a presentation by myself and Jeremiah to the person or company that ends up being my 2,500th follower? Jeremiah - you interested? We could ustream it to our combined followers...
