Most Companies Block Twitter (and Good for Them)

So, social networking is critical for business, huh? Well, it might be, but it isn't likely to be so important during work hours with more than half of companies in a recent survey saying that they block social networking sites in the office.

And good for them, we say. Not because of productivity and all that but because just about anything that hastens the demise of the completely ridiculous notion that is Twitter is something we like. By the way, we'd like to remind you that you can follow RCPU on Twitter at http://twitter.com/leepender. Just probably not from work. And hopefully not for long.

I was not sure I read the headline right. (Congratulations for not blindly following the technology masses.) I agree with you but I have seen some good uses for twitter. I guess that in order to get market share you need everybody to think they need to be sending tweets. But I think the reality is that it may be a useful technology for some markets. I do not have a twitter account because I cannot see the value for myself. "I am sitting on the porch"
