    Mixed feelings about White House tweets. Should the WH be social networking? Probably not.

    Can Twitter be used to shrink the business of the country to 140 characters at a time? Maybe. Can’t tell if it is efficient or unreasonably reductive…

    You can tweet links to longer things. I see no reason why WH shouldn’t join.

    Thanks so much for highlighting my post about CEOs and social media. I prepared for a session that I facilitated in India for NASSCOM. The original post on my blog has some fascinating discussion from NGOS around the world on this topic.
