I get it. IT supports business, and is its raison d’etre. Okay.
But now, they want to make money with Twitter? Come on! I saw this article, and it got me to thinking (I do that). As Twitter tries to make money, what will it do to the Microblogging service? I mean it’s so cool now. I can just tweet my little IT consultant thoughts from my cell phone, and not worry about whether or not sufficient business value has been delivered. It’s just kinda cool. And it doesn’t have to make sense.
In all seriousness, though, it’s about time. It seems like whatever is hot today dies (or at least becomes irrelevant) unless the hot-new-thing can deliver business value. Looks like it’s time for Twitter to put on its big boy (or girl?) pants. Get kicked out of the nest. Start giving back.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to playing Texas Hold ‘Em on Facebook.
