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.
