I Can Haz Twitter?

I Can Haz Twitter?

lots of people around these parts are becoming obsessed with twitter, the catchy, addictive little microblogging service that let’s you post whatever to the world in 140 characters. what i think is most amazing is the way the service has taken off as a marketing platform for marketers savvy enough to grasp how to use it. several atlanta-based organizations have figured it out. i thought i would share with you the atlanta stuff that i follow on twitter, just in case you are curious. would love it if you would drop your faves in the comments:

@atlantamusic – the atlanta music guide, keeps you up-to-date on all music going down in the atl
@atlanta_steam – atlanta’s lingerie football league franchise. this is pretty silly but too silly to pass up. btw – how sad is it that none of our major francises can figure out twitter (braves, hawks, thrashers> but the atlanta steam can?
@ATLHOMER – atlanta sports thought from the ultimate homer
@beeratlanta – the atlanta beer guide. i don’t drink but if i did this resource would be invaluable
@criminalrecords criminal records twitter feed – a highly entertaining feed from one of atlanta’s best independent merchants
@earl_eav – the earl – the newly created twitter feed for the popular east atlanta restaurant and music venue
@myATLevents – myATLevents – a great feed of atltana events
@peachyruns – Big Peach Running Company – twitter feed for the greatest running store in the world. a must-follow for atlanta runners

got all that?

good, now i have just one more that is a must follow:

@atlantametblogs – that’s right we are on twitter now too. give us a follow for updates and fastest notification of new posts.

and of course you can follow this intrepid author at @jeherv.

    I’d suggest following @InsidePerimeter, but it’s all about me and notsomuch about our fair city.

    LOL cats are the worst. However following me on Twitter isn’t, @jamsmooth. There is also someone impersonating me at @fakejamsmooth. Jack Bauer is helping me figure that one out.

    An imposter. . . very Scoobs, Jamsmooth.

    Can’t get on-board with:
    @atlantamusic just whores out Ticket Alternative events
    @myATLevents seems a little spammy to me – am I alone in that opinion?

    Totally infatuated with:
    @beeratlanta ROCKS!

    Shameless plug – @tessa ;)

    […] said something like this, as inspired by a twitter convo with @lauter and @carl (see also: I can haz twitter?): The post office is a government operation. As such, you could and should enforce recycling in […]

    I have no problem with @atlantamusic just whoring out Ticket Alternative events.

    a) it reminds me of shows I want to see
    b) Ticket Alternative is the best ticketing service in town (imho)
    c) it beats the crap out of the majority of the brightkite tweets I see (also imho)
