Evan Williams of Twitter.com on Charlie Rose

Dont be left behind



I'm a nerd who watches the Jim Lehrer Hour, Chicago Tonight and Charlie Rose like some people watch American Idol... religiously. I'm also a nerd smart enough to set up camp blogging four years ago. Not because I was a tech nerd; I'd never blogged or wrote HTML code before. Rather, I had to get found and get an edge in a sea of Realtors.

WatchEvan Williams was on Charlie Rose last week in a terrific interview. He explains how Twitter.com users push the envelope and create new outlets for his invention. I have a Twitter account but have not "employed it" just yet. However, I've been using the same principals he talks about; communicating how people like to communicate and finding new ways to USE the mediums.

I'm far from the first, but I bet I'm an early real estate texter, emailer and certainly blogger. Why? Because clients want to text, email and read blogs.

Thomas,
Your site looks great. Very professional.. my site takes a little more a of a personal, day to day approach to my business. I think your site has a ton of great information and the group you have looks really involved.

I think you will get a link!

As for Twitter and other platforms... it all comes down to what works for your business model, how you use it... and what you like!
