Twitter is not for selling – it’s for listening

According to Donal Daly, Twitter is the most immediate source of happenings on the planet.  Where other internet presences might be like attending a lecture (an interactive one) or browsing a store, or conducting commerce in a one-to-one transaction, Twitter is more like the cocktail party or networking event.  Here you garner snippets, factoids, gossip and rumor, that yes, you can interact with, but all the time you should remember that Twitter’s not the place to sell.

And that’s the challenge for sales people with Twitter.
