In this interview I talk with Frank Eliason—the senior director of national customer care for Comcast—and the man behind @ComcastCares.
You may have heard that Comcast is on Twitter, but Frank talks about the channels Comcast monitors and how they engage customers. Frank mentions a concept called “peers helping peers.” In the video Frank also talks about what types of employees are best for handling Twitter support. Frank shares how Twitter helped Comcast rapidly identify a problem during the NHL playoffs in less than three minutes. He also shares the biggest mistakes businesses make with social media.

I wanted to provide a bit of the back story on this interview. I was attending Blog World and saw Frank on a Panel discussion. I tweeted to him while he was on the stage, saying I would love to interview him.
He responded back almost immediately (via his iPhone), “Sure thing.” And we proceeded to do the unscripted interview you see here right after his presentation. Just goes to show you the power of social media!
