But one of my favorite non-promotional tweets was this one: http://twitter.com/HudsonCtyGeneal/status/4928875380]]>
From your example we learn that we can use Twitter to ask a genealogy question or to corroborate information.]]>
Case in point: a third cousin told me that our common ancestor was interviewed by Edna Ferber and that she credited him in one of her books. I put a call out, via Twitter, to have all my library friends check their stacks for a copy of this book and see if it was true. Within minutes I had several replies and got my answer. In this case, Twitter was the fastest way for me to answer a genealogy question. However, the tweet itself was not very exciting to read…which is why I asked you the question. Good examples may not stem from good tweets.
Aren’t you glad we’re not in the same ProGen? I ask these questions all the time.]]>
