It’s the first Tuesday of the month, and another issue of flyte log–our email newsletter on Web marketing–is arriving soon at an inbox near you.

This month we look at Twitter, a "micro-blogging" tool that allows you to share the minutiae of your life and follow the trifles of others…all in 140 characters bites or less.

Can this really be used for business communications, or is it best suited for letting people know what you had for lunch? The fact is, many professionals are using Twitter to share ideas, network, ask questions and connect.

Learn more about Twitter, and whether it fits into your business and marketing plans with our spanking new article, How to Use Twitter for Business.

If you’d like to see Twitter in actions you can see a couple of my most recent "tweets" in the top right column of flyte’s blog–at least for the foreseeable future. You can also follow me, Rich Brooks, at Twitter.

    I believe Twitter to be extremely valuable in the business world – especially as adoption continues to penetrate new segments….

    I think it can be a particularly powerful tool – especially for small businesses where IT resources and eMarketing budgets are minimal at best.

    Here's a post on one of the ways we've leveraged Twitter in a large corporation: http://tinyurl.com/585pp4
