I use Twitter to find story ideas, expert sources and subjects for stories for BlackEnterprise.com, Black Enterprise magazine, and even our television shows, Our World with Black Enterprise and the Black Enterprise Business Report. I also use it to communicate with the speakers and attendees I connect with each year at the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference. I've learned to feed content from BlackEnterprise.com directly to my profile on Twitter, using the capabilities of other social media sites such as Networked Blogs and StumbleUpon's Su.Pr. It's also cool to see our tweets picked up by other sites, such as MuckRack, which shares the tweets of journalists on Twitter. But what I love best about Twitter is the ability to get insights from and about the audience Black Enterprise exists to serve in real time—and have a ball while doing it.
