No I haven't had swine flu or got fed up with posting. We've been out of reach of broadband, and even electricity, for the last week on our annual pilgimage to the Stretton Hills in Shropshire. Even the mobile phone connectivity is very dodgy there. Anyway, a bit more of that in the next post, but meanwhile can it be that I have spotted a waterways communications first before the redoubtable Andrew Denny of Granny Buttons fame?? It's just the kind of thing Andrew likes to write about. Maybe he already has, because I am not up to date with his writings, but just in case, here it is.
It seems that businesses are beginning to see the potential of using Twitter to inform their customers of offers, and in an advert in this month's Canal Boat magazine I noticed that the New & Used Boat Co have set up a Twitter thingy for customers to see new additions to their boats for sale listings. twitter.com/newand usedboat .
Personally I have not tried twitting or whatever the verb is and so I don't really know if people would find it useful or not. Maybe Andrew would have something to say about it.
