1. How do you use microblogging?

Re-publish news and information that I think will be useful and helpful to my followers

Re-publish news about client information

Have fun and bring some sense of humor into the conversation

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

I use it for new business development. I am also using it to pitch members of the media on story ideas. And finally, as the Media Representative for @jeffpulver‘s 140 Characters Conference, it has given me the opportunity to work with leading members of the media to cover the broader and cultural aspects of how Twitter is disrupting the traditional news cycle.

3. What makes you follow some people/businesses over others?

Useful content and unique insights into principles of business and life.

4. Who would you like to see on Twitter who isn’t there already?

It’s not who is going to be on Twitter that’s important. It’s how people use it to be useful and helpful. I wish more people were focused on that.

5. Why are you sponsoring TweetCampSA?

Because it’s going to be a blast, and my kids like the T-shirts they get.

6. Give us an elevator pitch about your business.
