    Twitter for those who still don't get it

    • 1 Comments
    I've blogged about Twitter before, and usually wouldn't go on about it. But two observations this week: The only people who keep talking about how they "don't get Twitter" or "don't see the value in it" are those whom haven't used it. A cool presentation...
