I had been invited to be part of a panel discussion on Rosebowl, called Talking Point, to discuss the pros and cons of Twitter. My fellow panel members, who included my friend Kenney Jacob, and I talked at length, including about the power of tweets in promoting an idea or product, or a person. But if anyone has doubts about that, take a look at what happened when Dr Tharoor tweeted a link to this blog.
"Excellent blog on NH issue http://bit.ly/nh-kerala but flies in the face of severe political resistance. In democracy popular will prevails"
The result? 50+ new followers on Twitter, 10+ new followers of the Blog and 1,400 visits in less than 24 hours!
Welcome to all of you, thanks for checking Trivandrum Rising out!
