Twitter for reporting

Until now I did not really understand the added value of Twitter. Blogging I understand. But just mentioning what you do, it sounds a bit…. irrelevant. I know a lot of people see this completely different, so probably I am wrong (so pls don’t feel offended). And I think you never know for sure if you don’t test it yourself. So I need to find a good reason to push myself in trying this.

Wednesday we started a new project, which needs to be delivered fast, so we are going to do an extreme developement project. I have the honour of managing the project. Because we all like the concept we are really focused on delivering good results. We have a capable team. So far nothing but good news 🙂 Now, the next part is reporting to my client. We are doing this project as an internal project, so my client is also internal, but always really busy. And because time is short I want to be able to give small regular updates. What I do know he is using Twitter on a regular basis.

So I decided to bring these two together, and I will use Twitter to do reporting on the project. Not the normal Highlight Report at the end of the week or an Exception Report (hopefully not needed). But just small updates, some additional small info, short questions, etc, just the type of messages Twitter is meant for.

It will be a nice test to see if Twitter works for me and if I can swift to the extremely cool 😉 people that do use Twitter. Will I like it? I will keep you posted.
