Twittering for good and not just to report bathroom visits…

Got friends? If so, sharing is caring -->

If you read this blog or my twitter entries you probably know I have been sick the last few days…..well I am feeling much better now and figured it as time to get back to my blog. Holed up in bed I read a lot of blog entries and followed my twitter subscriptions. One of the twitters that caught my eye was from C.C. Chapman recounting that someone asked him to name a company that is using Twitter in a great way and he came up blank. I was determined to find someone so I could post about it and look like a smartie pants but alas I came up with nothing as well…….But I did come across a website that is using Twitter in the smartest way I have seen so far!

Bargainista is a great site that discovers and announces “sales” from retail stores in the Toronto area. The site is jammed packed with entries and each “sale” also gets its own Twitter posting so if you are not signed up for the RSS feed you can still get a reminder (in a line or two) about the newest discoveries.

I see a lot of people use Twitter to announce a running account of their every move…..and that is cool if you are into that sort of thing but the more people figure innovative ways to use this powerful tool the more important it will become!


Disclosure : The lady who runs the site is a friend of mine and very attractive but neither influenced my decision to write this post 🙂

  1. Glad you’re feeling well enough to blog again.

    Do you think after you kind words someone will ask me to help them use Twitter strategically? ; ) That’s the trick to using any social media tools and apps successfully.
