Sharon Sarmiento at 901am put together a great piece on the five cool ways smart people are using Twitter. Its good to see a small list of how peopele are leveraging Twitter, the hyper-short (140 character) micro-communication platform, can do (and avoiding what it doesn’t do).
Its great that Sarmiento starts out with the obligatory at first I didn’t get it statement when writting about twitter, but then seems to come around. For me, I don’t know that I’m smart, but I do use twitter some of these ways… at least some of the time. The rest of the time, I am “[broadcasting] every random thought that [crosses my brain]“.
