  45. 45. Influencers Notice I agree with Christine Perkett. I like the fact that PR people are reading my tweets, at least if they are reading the substantive posts that most of the tweets link to. That way theyll follow what Im writing and, I hope, only pitch me on stuff theres some chance I am interested in. As long as they don’t start pitching me on Twitter -- Facebook pitches are bad enough. Steve Wildstrom, BusinessWeek blog, “Freak out: Twitter infested by PR”“The agency of the future is a ‘connected’ one I can’t imagine everadvising a client to deal with an advertising, PR, or interactive team thatdoesn’t get social media. But with the power shifting to the participants,agencies must demonstrate they can participate before they can everhelp clients with it”Jeremiah Owyang, Forrester/Web Strategist Blog
