    How To Start Using Twitter As A Small Business

    Most small businesses that we work with have not taken a social media step beyond Facebook. Most have only used Facebook because they are using it personally.

Facebook is not always the best place to focus, but because they already "know" how to use Facebook, that's where they start.

    Should Twitter Remove the 140 Character Limit?

    I read a pair of contradictory blog posts this weekend, one stating that Twitter needs to break through the 140 character limit for messages in order to grow market share, and another that discussed why the 140 character limit is appropriate and that there are other, more pressing needs for Twitter to address in order to continue gaining in popularity. This topic is one I touched on very briefly during episode 4 of the protocol 80 o'er coffee podcast, but since it has gained attention since then I figured I'd post my thoughts here. Are you ready? Let's do this thing!
