Just thought I would share my 15 seconds of fame for this year... well, maybe it's up to 30 seconds now.
After blogging here about some ways I have used Twitter at a local government LINK and LINK, a newspaper story followed LINK which then was followed by a couple TV news stories in the Oklahoma City area. As any government employee knows, many times "good" press is hard to find so it's always worth sharing it when it happens.
Both OKC Fox25 LINK and News9 LINK have now covered the activity which has helped spread the awareness of the Twitter features. Interestingly enough, both stories were different enough that they did not seem overly duplicated... or maybe am just biased. :-) Additionally we were mentioned in a CNN.com story about Law Enforcement agencies using Twitter LINK.
With Twitter gaining public attention the timing was right and having had the application in place since late November 2008 it worked out well.
Like the rest of the world anymore though, you blink and it's on to the next thing - I had my 15 seconds so now we're off to another adventure.
