« Nielsen and McKinsey launch social media consulting brand | Main | Future of digital comms: Facebook's boss on the death of email and why it's good for brands »

June 17, 2010


The idea is quite a turn-off to me. Although I never really got the hang of Twitter, the idea's main attraction to me was its hive mind, 'ask the audience', mass market nature. You could see the way the world was really thinking. If suddenly a single individual can spend his way into the zeitgeist then that's just blown whatever little interest I had in it.

How many top 10 trend places will Twitter allow to be bought? Does buying a trend mean it gets pushed beyond its natural rise up ladder? Just natural questions I have.

While I like Twitter for being able to link with people with similar interests, I have to admit I never consult the trend list.

Very interesting marketing trend though.
