There are some great techniques and tools, however, which you can employ to get to know the twits in your neck of the woods. And once you find and follow these local twits, it’s your job to befriend them with your interest based experiences, professional expertise (transparently), and above all…being helpful.

Best of MyTechOpinion ? 2008

Well, 2008 was a wild ride for us here at MTO. Reggie found himself in a new job, Director of Social Media at Cyberhomes. Chad’s budding blog business boomed (you know how I love good alliteration)! And I took home a Major Award (sorry, too many viewings of A Christmas Story). Well, let’s just say it’s nice to be recognized for working hard. And a little recognition, along with overwhelming support from readers like you, is all the motivation we need to take MTO to the next level in 2009!
