  •’re working with theTwitterverse to create the storyline for a brand new opera, which will be performed throughout the weekend of Deloitte Ignite (4, 5, 6 September 2009). We’re investigating how short, 140-character contributions can build upon each other to create a non-linear narrative – like a Choose Your Own Adventure story or a game of Consequences. Our mysterious opera director will be regularly blogging here with updates on the story, and as well as offering his thoughts on how the story can combine with some music and acting and marvellous singing to become a finished piece.Our Twitter Opera experiment starts on 3 August 2009. If you would like to contribute, then you can tweet your line of the story to @youropera or visit The story starts like this:
  • This is a listening/engaging system that integrates both traditional media (press mentions) w/social media reputation management. Listening is red – and there are different posts for listening ..
  • don't look for numbersWhen looking for influencers, you must not forget that these people will help you generating a lead: it could be a subscription, a purchase, a dialogue or a thousand more actions but the influencer should push influenced to act.So let's rethink it: are you looking for someone who can reach the highest number of users?Probably not. The one you're looking for is a person that can make an impact on the followers and inspire them, move them to act and push them to spread the message he is carrying. Real influence is not measured (only) with numbers. It's fundamental to understand what kind of affinity an influencer has with the audience.Communicate the signal and wipe out the noise by choosing the right people.

Twitter has limited utility and is best used for finding influentials and dialoguing with the types of supporters who can lead others.90/10 rule = 10% of Tweeters tweet 90% of tweetsTwitter will stay important for those who want the news first – that includes journalists, bloggers, activists and politicos!Soon, there will be a “twitter for normal people” so best to understand now how information spreads and power wields influence in this type of environment.
