What's Twitter Good For??

How about Media exposure?

I used to live in Hong Kong – so whenever there's news regarding the island nation, I am very interested.

On Friday I wrote a post on Twitter about the MetroPark Hotel in Hong Kong and how guests can't leave the hotel due to Swine Flu – guests are effectively quarantined inside the hotel. Within an hour I was contacted by the BBC asking if I would be willing to be interviewed about my experience at the hotel.

They thought I was actually there and I could have been. It seems that the media is searching Twitter for certain keywords and if you have a relevant post you may be contacted.

Think about how you could use this strategy in your business. What are you doing that's relevant to news of the day?
