On the air Wednesday morning
Neal Gladner has invited me to come on Hot Springs radio to talk how to use all this new media, including blogs and — yep — Twitter in business. Our discussion begins around 7:07 a.m. Wednesday morning on KZNG New Talk 1340 AM. I invite all my dozen Hot Springs friends (and anyone else interested in this stuff) to listen in!
Obviously, there’s lots of businesses and other organizations taking part in the online conversation. On Twitter, you’ve got major companies like Tyson Foods and Arvest Bank using the microblogging service to spur action for charitable events and share resources and information with customers. Others are using it to monitor (possibly shape?) online discussion of their brand. And media companies like Arkansas Business are pushing news content, branding themselves with a tech savvy audience, trolling for information/sources and interacting with users. Blogs are used for many of the same general goals, albeit in a slight different way.
(See our Arkansas Twitter Guide here for a sampling of businesses and media on Twitter.)
It should be a fun 10-12 minutes on the air in Hot Springs. Catch Neal on Twitter @NealGladner, and you can follow me @LT.
