Power of Twitter – Meeting up with Jeremiah Owyang from the Altimeter Group
You know the problem with social media? It can take you down the rabbit hole. So, why do we shuffle and re-shuffle our work and why do we keep an eye on the social media channels?
Because you never know when lightening may strike.
Lightening struck for me recently. I happened to be checking my twitter stream…for the 1,000th time, and I saw a tweet from a colleague of mine, Nick Seguin, cofounder of DynamIt to Jeremiah Owyang, Partner at Altimeter Group about Jeremiah being in Columbus. I immediately scanned Jeremiah’s latest tweets and saw he had indeed come to Columbus for about 24 hours for a client meeting.
Nick and I both reached out to Jeremiah via Twitter’s Direct Messaging and arranged to get together with Jeremiah in the Easton area. Long story short, Nick, some of his colleagues, Jamie and Kevin and I got a few hours of casual conversation with a very smart guy and social media superstar. Lightening struck and Nick and I were there to catch it. Had it not been for the power of Twitter, we would have never had this opportunity.
