Twitter News Service

Twitter.jpg

Chris Brogan suggested that people be able to use Twitter to post news to Truemors. We listened to him, and my buddies at Electric Pulp made this possible even though they were really busy with Stephen Colbert. I call it “Twitter News Network” (TNN). Here’s how what you need to do:

  1. Follow the Twitter Truemors account by clicking here.

  2. Tell the world by sending your tweet to “@truemors”. For example, “@truemors Steve Jobs wore a white turtleneck”. (Inside joke—this really is news.)

  3. Go here to see it (it appears after a few minutes.)

Give it a shot. Incidentally, Twitter remains as useful and fun as ever.

    That’s a perfect example of instant/interactive communication with customers.

    Guy is excellent and motivational. But don’t listen to him if you want to improve your Googlebum rating.

    Why do venture capitalists usually opt to support technologically inclined businesses with strong proprietary rights? What about “traditional” businesses with a tenacity for improvement over older models?

    I used to be a guy fan but it seems that lately guy is doing nothing besides talking about twitter and truemors. Just trying to promote truemors on the back of twitter and his own reputation. He’s gotta stop talking about truemors very soon.

    Guy,
    I love your blog, and check it and learn from it regularly. But come on, ease up on the Truemors content…(-:

    The one thing I would suggest is that people start to think global. We are language centric and it keeps us from venturing out to a larger audience. I have translated Baidu, China’s largest search engine, into English for those who want to reach 1.3 million people. If you want to submit your website, go to:

    Hi. Interesting. Twitter is fun, and I use it almost every day, but so far it hasn’t been that useful in a business setting. It has potential, but it also has potential for being a lot of noise.

    Twitter is a good service. But to get something useful out of it for business purpose is little difficult..It has too much Noise
