Unspun wonders if he will sound like a Luddite if he would opt for blogging if given a choice between blogging and Twittering. He currently does both, and finds Plurk difficult to get into.
Each has its place and what some Digerati are doing these days is to have Twitter and Facbook point to their blogs, which Unspun has also been using.
Overall, the possibilities with new media are exciting though. Toward the end of the clipped story below (from the Jakarta Post – they still have this policy of updating today’s news only at about noonish so no one can clip from their website) is a paragraph discussing how the Israeli government used Twitter to answer questions at a press conference (New Media Conference?). The logic was that they can answer questions real-time to a worldwide audience, direct, without the traditional media as intemediary.
Unspun is now all fired up to try to use new media to any crisis management client. Just imagine being able to communicate real time on fairly complex matters without having to resort to the traidtional media who, more often than not, get it wrong.
