    Interesting links – I was not aware the corporate world had really jumped aboard the twitter wagon. I think the use of twitter by businesses can be very effective if managed correctly.

    In the current economic climate businesses must continually stay in positive contact with their investors. A business that starts to lose contact with its shareholders could start to face very real dangers to their future. Twitter appears to be a good way for businesses to achieve this.

    The downside is that it is perhaps harder for businesses to put a positive spin on poor results etc. due to the small tweet size. In these situations the business would need to provide a more in-depth PR response.

    However, if the shareholders start relying heavily on Twitter and other microblogging tools to stay up to date then inconsistent or ambiguous updates could prove to be a hindrance to their success, and quickly create fear in shareholders.
