My friend and colleague, Nicole Schuman, recently posted about Twitter and its ability to “facilitate better connections.” I wanted to extrapolate a bit further on the flexibility, versatility, and visibility that Twitter enables Voip Supply to have and to offer our customers. First off let’s talk about Twitter. If you don’t already know, Twitter is a micro blogging platform. It alows for communication between Twitter accounts by simply putting an @ in your tweet. Which brings me to tweets…what are they? Well if you have seen instant messages, then you know what a tweet is. So just how does Twitter offer flexibility, versatility and visibility for us here at VoIP Supply? Well here goes…

Flexibility: You can access it from anywhere…and I mean anywhere. Your IPhone, any Web connection through IM, or web applications such as thwirl. Which enables you to keep people up to date. This helps hot news spread. Whether you are at work, at home or in commute, you can update.

Versatility: With in the 140 character limit (yes there is a limit, but its a good thing–it forces you to get to the point) you have the ability to simply point your readers in the direction of a story or put a question out there for anyone to answer. It really is as much or as little as you want it to be.

Visibility: Twitter automatically updates from our Voip Insider blog which is fantastic! With the auto updating (by way of a third party application) it grants visibility into what we are doing with in the company, community and marketplace. With blog articles written by our dynamic team of authors including our CEO Benjamin Sayers all things VoIP are covered in both the blogging space and the micro blogging space that Twitter allows us to utilize.

Ultimately Twitter is another channel used to communicate with our customers, partners and friends. It’s a tool that everyone can appreciate. Some come take a look and Join us on Twitter!
