    Very good video. How does one go about monitoring Twitter?  Do we have to collect all of our clients Twitter names and be following them before we are able to see what they are saying about the company? I confess I don’t know that much about Twitter and how to use it effectively. Thanks for you help.

    Hey Michael,

    As one who’s blogged about domain names, registrars and the like, coupled with my recent growing interest in social media, I want to thank you and Shashi for this interview. I learned quite some interesting tidbits especially from Shashi.
    Speaking of Shashi, time to bug him on his own blog. :)

    i learned here that time is essential when something breaks on twitter. What happens if you can’t be there on time? About trouble shooting that would be a difficult task for people using social media for their business. I guess as long as they use the right words, they could manage.
