Twitter for business.

Twitter is a Web 2.0 site/service/social network which utilizes text massaging to connect people and ideas. Its uses are rapidly evolving beyond the boundaries of basic social networking sites such as MySpace.

Personally I use it to keep up with breaking news which are delivered to my cell phone by CNN via Twitter. Also Twitter is great for first person accounts of various natural disasters such as the current California forest fires. When a story breaks, you can always find somebody on Twitter who is right in the middle of it

Now, it seems, the idea of using Twitter for business is sprouting wings. A YouTube search for this topic resulted in 945 results. Here is one of these videos. It was made by O'Reilly Media and it's called Twitter for Business.
