Relief for Twitter Headaches

,----[ Quote ]
| Marcus Schmidt uses one called Tweet Assignments for his job as a 
| senior marketing manager at Microsoft Corp. He oversees two 
| company Twitter pages where consumers post about 300 questions and 
| comments a day. He says Tweet Assignments helps him generate swift 
| responses from the appropriate Microsoft employees by allowing him 
| to send consumers' tweets to colleagues instantly, without having 
| to copy them into email messages. The recipients can then respond 
| directly to consumers with tweets of their own or send responses 
| back to Mr. Schmidt.

| Having looked at the account, IMO theres certainly room for suspicion and the
| account may be of interest to people who dont like the idea of FUD being
| spread at the expense of alternative to Microsoft products.
| What makes me suspicious is the fact that at the time of writing this they
| follow no people.

| As regulars here are aware, in between commenting on tech issues, I do like
| to challenge comments which I think need clarity at the very least.  Heres
| Flanakin hes a senior development consultant for Microsoft and would like to
| tell you a few things about Windows 7:
| âwowâ the polish on Win7 RC is absolutely beautifulâ some small things are
| astoundingly better than the betaâ
| ârepaving my oldest machine with Win7 RCâ
| and whats the spec of this old PC? Two months old is it?
| [...]
| So I decided to give Flanakin Microwalkerâs site a visit.
| http://michaelflanakin.com/ heres a snippet of what he has to say there:
| âIâm an open source advocate, when it makes sense, and have a strong software
| engineering and architecture background.â

Microsoft + Federated Media + Twitter = ExecTweets

| I was curious if there was more to the ExecTweets site than met the eye. Was
| Microsoft just paying for advertising/marketing mentions on Twitter?
