All a Twitter
It seems that everyone lately is all a twitter over Twitter, that free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Twitter, which has become incredibly popular worldwide, has even reached the ag business. Ag businesses, specifically certain wineries, are attempting to reach potential customers through the world of social media. In fact one winery created quite a stir by advertising for someone who loved wine and knew their way around the internet. In return for meeting those two qualifications that person would receive $10,000 a month for six months to tweet and blog about the “joys of wine country”. You heard right, $10,000 a month! I could be a major “twit” for that much money a month. Okay, technically that’s probably not what people who use Twitter are called, but I’m thinking perhaps someone who would spend that kind of money to pay someone to twitter just might be. Time will tell whether to “tweet” is truly sweet or will quickly turn sour.
