    Charlie Bell entry:

    "At ihop grabbing a salad. Yummy. Trying to eat a little healthier. Getting old, my metabolism slowing down."


    This is why I don't Twitter. Who cares if Charlie Bell is at IHOP getting a salad?

    O.k., I've now read my first full page of twitter output. Tell me again why anyone would be interested in this?

    This is like the spandex fad in the late 80's. Just another way of putting your self out there.

    I now have a Twitter account for a project, I may setup some more, although I will never have a personal-ish one, just as I don't have a Facebook or MySpace page.

    It is a very good viral news distribution tool.

    But seeing celebs post moronic tweets to one another is super lame.

    I gotta admit, Charlie's twitter channel is pretty cool. He uses it intelligently. It's very clever personal marketing.

    I'm pretty sure the "I got a salad at IHOP" is imbedded advertising. IHOP INC. probably paid CV $50,000 to drop that phrase in his twitter account.

    That was Bell. Who thinks that IHOP is the Hilton.

    CV's comments are generally pretty cool. They are insightful about the player experience without crossing the line where intimacy starts.

    I have to show this to my wife. She loathes this type of thing with a passion that you would not believe.

    Charlie Bell seems to be using twitter in the stereotypical self-centered kind of way.

    "Having lucky charms for breakfast yo."

    I read an article in TIME magazine a couple of weeks ago where people are doing a lot more creative things with it than that, like:

    1. Opening up a day-long conference to twitter users so that non-attendees could share ideas

    2. Sharing links with like-minded contacts (like other hobbyists that are into the same things you're into)

    3. Real-time news updates

    Here is the article if you are interested:

    The problem is people take Twitter and go too far because it is a fad. Where I work someone got the bright idea that we should all take one day of the week and twitter positive messages to each other. Now who wants to read that crap?

    I'm like DBA on the spandex...I wear it and the grocery store or wherever.
