SharePoint and Twitter..

Tuesday, 10 February 2009

Just Read an interesting blog post about combining Twitter and SharePoint.

Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/) is a free micro blogging service, where members can update their status or whatever they like via the web or their mobile phone. I've had a twitter account for a while now, but yet to begin using it in anger. Combining Twitter and web apps like tinyURL can be pretty useful for both social and business use. You can provide quick links to your own blog posting, or other types of content 'on the fly', and have followers watch your timeline and status.

Another similar tool called Yammer (http://www.yammer.com/), provides the corporate equivalent of twitter. It is free to use, although you can pay $1 per user/month to get more administrative functionality.

Anyway, check out the following post, theres a video link too...
