MENU OF TWITTER APPS

Twenty (plus) ways to use Twitter in real estate:  B2B, B2B2C, B2C, C2B, C2C

 

LIVE Notes from Boston Media Makers:  Sunday, December 2, 2007

 

Real estate innovators are exploring ways to use Twitter, a "micro-blogging" / presence application, at their annual convention in Las Vegas. You can follow their posts directly on Twitter or a site that has been set-up to aggregate posts from selected tech leaders, http://narupdates.wordpress.com/

 

Readers are invited to use this wiki to document what they've seen, and / or how they hope to use Twitter in the future in the categories below.  Twitter doesn't have it's own wiki yet, but there is an independent Twitter Fan Wiki which includes a Newbies Corner and an amazing list of Twitter apps.  If you use Typepad, use this link to add Twitter to your blog.

 

Working list below includes over 60 uses and is growing daily.  Can we make it to 200?  Real estate agents, and more importantly, home buyers and sellers, how are you using Twitter?  Please log onto this wiki and let us know, or send The Real Estate Cafe privately.
