The Many Ways to Use Twitter

Jeremiah Owyang lists the many ways he uses Twitter:

  • “As a ’shared feed’ reader. I’ll post up links of what I’m reading that I find is interesting in near real time, and give some commentary.”
  • “As a chat room. We collectively work out problems, issues, and I gain insight to other people’s viewpoints”
  • “Event capture: Lately, when I attend an event… I’ll fire off the top nuggets I learn”
  • “Listening tool: It’s interesting to find out what others are sharing and talking about…”
  • “Traffic driving tool: I use it to direct people to this blog…”

A great example of thinking strategically about a tool that seems so simple.
