Sweet Tweets of the week…

You may notice – I have opened it up and taken away the shackles of a number… I might even start categorising in future – you know for the thousands that might read this. 

1) First up this little oddity that came through early in the week – Banners On Flies. This is kind of what it says on the tin – oddly they have tied advertising banners to flies (yes the ones that swarm round poo) at a trade show and then let them fly about. 

2) Next up the new Twitter revelation that is – LISTS – I notice they had introduced these but I wasnt to sure how I would find them useful – one read of this article by Dave Troy (via @martinbailie) and I was up to speed seeing how they are useful and also the future potential of commercialisation. I even set some up myself – so I can view them and perhaps cut out some of the less interesting tweets and get straight to those people I truely enjoy reading/learning something new from.


3) A book to read

baked invia @martinbailie also with the line –  

Baked-In book review – ‘Translation: Put the marketing guys in charge.’ Like it!

I to like this idea, going to track the book down and have a read – sounds interesting.     


You might have noticed Google’s graphics this week – we saw and awesome Wallace and Grommit one but then the past couple of days has been 40th Anniversary Seasame Street images. Loving the cookie monster.
