Eric Mack thinks that within 18 months Twitter will change our world. I agree!
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 :-)

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
