I've been meaning to give a little shout out to KGW (KGWNewsChannel8) and their Twitter-ificness. They've been doing a fabulous job of tweeting and actually did a story last week about the real-time social networking tool.
As part of their research, the 7 p.m. live newscast (TheSquare) asked Twitter users how they'd describe the service...in 140 characters or less. I responded with the following:
Twitter keeps people connected in real time…but challenges those of us who are verbose. It's a social media brainteaser!
They then went on to use the definitions (including ours!) on the newscast. A really short, but really sweet, mention of our social media work. We love it and thanks KGW!
So how would you define Twitter? Are you a regular user? Do you follow us on Twitter? No? You should!
P.S. You can also follow one of my very favorite reporters on Twitter -- StephStricklen. We go way back and I can assure you that Steph is 100% genuine and totally awesome.
