Heh, I got my first first business-to-business contact through Twitter today. I had become somewhat irritated at the slow rate of take-up by some of our teams for an amazing offer by a company owned by our own parent company. I vented by frustration in a Tweet last night. This afternoon, I received a request to “follow” me from a strange. But he looked somewhat familiar. When I agreed, I soon got a direct email from a sales person working for the company in London. He looks up his own company in Twitter’s search facility each day. So that shows yer!
