I see three key benefits of using Twitter:
- It lowers resistance to sharing information. (The 140 character limitation is now a strength.)
- It makes it easy to tap into a global mindset.
- And it provides quick recognition and feedback for what you think and know.

But I am disappointed to find so few KM people Tweeting. Twitter is one of the most powerful knowledge sharing and relationship building tools on the web.
I know I keep banging the Twitter drum but do go take a look and check out my list of KM tweeters! And follow me. I usually tweet several times a day on something of interest :-)
