Is Twitter a business? You betcha! says CEO Dick Costolo | CONEY MEDIA

"It took three years to send the first billion tweets, and we now send a billion tweets every six days.”

The average engagement rate — where an engagement is a click, a reply or a retweet — is orders of magnitude bigger, better than traditional digital media advertising.

John Podhortez in today's NYPost: "Twitter didn't destroy Weiner just because he'd done his dirty work on the site. It destroyed him because of what Twitter has become — a kind of national town hall of a sort and on a scale we've never seen before." http://nyp.st/j9TrOe

Seven Candidates; 140 Characters: Tweeting Toward the White House

Twitter’s rise is a tactical challenge for campaigns: How do they use a service that could, theoretically, give everyone on the campaign a bullhorn and gives candidates and staffers alike a chance to confront rivals and opponents in full view of the public and media? It’s a challenge that could prov

Mike Lupica in today's Daily News [http://nydn.us/mjRb3L]: "You want to talk about pictures that matter today? Talk about the pictures of Gabrielle Giffords that we saw over the weekend. Look at the smiling pictures of her, what we all want to be a good, pure light behind her eyes.

"Rep. Giffords comes back from real rehab, because somebody pointed a gun at her and fired it, not because she pointed a camera at herself."

Politicians flock to Twitter to reach constituents

"Twitter is becoming the new TV."

The key is balance, Dem consultant Roger Salazar said. "Do it in moderation, you're accessible. If you overdo it, you're a media whore. If you underdo it, you're ducking the press."

That means, Gil Duran said, that elected officials must remember one thing before hitting the "send" button: "Live by the tweet, die by the tweet."

New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's uncomfortable, unforgettable moment of un-"certitude" last week regarding a sexually suggestive photo tweeted to a 21-year-old female follower has only added to the mysteries about...

American Political Leaders Are Clueless About New Media

Clueless in Washington:

"I don’t get news on my phone. I don’t use Facebook or Twitter. I want substance," Rep Barney Frank told the Atlantic.

Yes that is a generalization, but I would argue it is generally true. Presidential advisors Karen Hughes and Mark Penn demonstrated it in their keynote talk at BlogWorld last year. Congressman Weiner is learning about the true meaning of transparency right now. Former GOP Congressman Chris Lee learn
