#MWC11 - could this be a Twitter Case Study?

About two days before the show began we noticed a little flurry of new followers - some of them were clients, prospects and analysts who'd seen our #MWC11 tagged posts but a significant few were from some Barcelona based escort agencies.

The day before the show we got a few (how to put this..?) VERY direct direct messages from these escort Twitter accounts and these continued throughout the show. Then, as soon as the show was over these new followers unfollowed us and disappeared.

Now, Twitter has its knockers (this pun is very much intended) but this clearly demonstrates the power of Twitter to monitor trends, shape a marketing message and reach out to a qualified, target audience - in this case tens of thousands of business executives away from home in a strange city.

I'm  not sure the powers that be at Twitter would want to use this as a case study but we like it...

  • Layer upon layer: why re-using existing infrastructure just makes so much fibre sense

    For thousands of years, and probably from not long after the end of the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago, a major track connected the Celts in the far South with their cousins in the North. By the time of the Roman Conquest, the British were still using this route; recognising its utility, legionnaires soon paved it and called it Ermine Street, using it to connect their capital, Londinium, with their far-off bases in Lincoln (Lindum Colonia) and York (Eboracum). Later, the English called it the Old North Road; and our A1 largely follows the same route. That’s continuity in infrastructure for you.

  • Italy’s trying to go back to the future to get universal broadband. We don’t think it’ll work

    One broadband operatore to rule them all? Rome’s attempt to build a national broadband service in a day. Reports on possible Italian state intervention raises less than comfortable memories of Blunders down Under and under-priced manifesto offers.
