I currently work at IBM as a Social Business Manger, leading social media initiatives across strategic areas for IBM. I work on planning and developing digital strategy, and engaging people in compelling discussions. My work involves creating awareness about IBM’s Smarter Planet campaign and how technology can help make the world smarter.
Why Twitter and TweetChat?
Twitter is a simple and easy to use platform helping us connect with people across the globe. We have successfully created an active community for Smarter Planet on Twitter. The platform enables us to stay connected with various stakeholders that matter and who have a real interest in the topic. We have found Twitter chats to be a great way to have conversations with the community on a wide range of topics. We use twitter chats to connect our global network of IBM experts with the community and it helps them build and nurture relationships with key influencers. We chose to use #Tweetchat because it makes participating in twitter chats, easy, fun and engaging.
