Atlanta Business Twitter Tweets

06/20/2008

Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Twitter_whale A tweet here. A tweet there. Everywhere a tweet tweet. What began, as every other social media marketing strategy did .. a way to communicate with friends, micro blogging is morphing into a most interesting business communication tactic.

On this muggy almost summer day for Friday Fun I wondered what businesses in my town of Hot'Lanta were tweeting. Doing a search on Twitter for ATL and Atlanta I found the following. Most surprising was Fulton County Office of the Sheriff.

Sidebar:  Interesting though none had direct message opened. Direct message is a private email option that takes place within the platform.

Nice idea to put together a local Twitter list. We need to get the CDC to add itself to that list!

BTW, I think you can only use DM on Twitter if both parties are following each other. It's not an option you can turn on or off.

@Nedra - thanks for the info. Surprised that the CDC is not micro blogging. Wonder if there are any healthcare organizations that are on Twitter.

Thanks EasyAutoSales - corrected. One tip .. it sure would 'humanize/socialise' your company if you used your name instead of your company (smile).

The key to Twitter is the level of listening you do as well as talking. It is definitely supposed to be an interactive program. And, in fact, this is where you build the majority of your Whuffie. The more you interact on Twitter, the more people will interact with you, which attracts others to you as well.
