Comments on: Why companies will stick with Twitter A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: lchowdhary Sat, 03 Jul 2010 07:36:15 +0000 Twitter has very low recall value. Companies will need to constantly update and will need to be interesting. uide-to-twitter-user-psychology.html

I don’t think it belies sophistication or any such thing… but I DO find that twitter comes with it’s enormous share of spam and crap, so I’d tend to stay away from it as a main portal for engaging clients/customers.

By: HBC Mon, 21 Jun 2010 17:12:47 +0000 Why NVG companies are sticking with Twitter in 2010:

– companies think it makes them look incredibly important, rip-roaringly successful and far too busy to read or write actual emails with big words
– clients who don’t mind being compared to birds are likely to be complacent, unfocused consumers
– you can’t be too critical in a Tweet or it would be called a “Croak”
– Tweets are [fingers crossed] inadmissible as evidence in court

Whereas by 2011 it shall be broadly recognized that:

– Tweeting doesn’t make you look busy, it makes you look stupid, semi-literate and ADD-afflicted
– customers who Tweet are in fact mentally feeble, therefore screwing them is statutory rape
– wait up: Steve Jobs’ deathbed legacy, in atonement for his sins with AT&T, the RIAA and DRM will be the iCroak – an instrument of popular revenge on venal corporatists everywhere, eats Tweets for breakfast… and it’s free!
– increasingly, court cases will be settled by apps; Tweets containing >1 smiley/frowny punctuation item become punishable by law…ZZAAP!!!!

Bring on the future, say I.
