Aha Moments - Tweets Ahoy!

I just had one of those Aha Moments similar to the one I had when I learned to read. I distinctly remember that burst of energy that hit my brain when I started to put together letters into words and how the words formed stories and how the stories could be written down. Thus began my love affair with words.

I had a similar burst when I used the web for the first time. I thought my head was going to explode with the possibilities. I couldn't sleep for days because my head was spinning with the leaps that we, as a society, could make. I think it was almost as if not as revolutionary as the printing press.

The most recent aha moment is about Twitter and how we communicate with our customers and vendors. It started because I sent a tweet about loving Salesforce.com and suddenly, they were following my twitters. I went to their recent updates and found a link to an article "How to Get Customer Service via Twitter". What an idea! Now we are connected via the web, via our phones, (i-phones for those who can have them - sorry Nancy & Dave), IM - what's next?

So I know I'm behind the times and slow to adopt this Web 2.0 stuff, but my god! Now that I'm there, I'm bowled over! I think my brain might explode.

If you find pieces of my brain laying around, please scrape it up and send back to me. I need all I can get. Things are moving so fast that if I don't have it all, I might not keep up.

Jo - you hit the nail on the head with that! We are a bit late to the party, but jumping in full force. Fun and inspiring isn't it?

If I see any portions of your brain matter laying around, I'll send them your way.
