Twitter based Ad Agency? Heck, yeah!

Felix Rhymes and I had an appetite stimulus conversation yesterday about Twitter. People who frequent Soundworks know that I am very excited about social networking. The first sign is the frequent use of the words twitter_bird21Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and blogging. I love being able to keep in touch and sometimes I hit max overload and have to take a break, but not for long.

Today, I noticed something quite stunning…a twitter-based ad agency. The owner, Carrie Bugby, won a Shorty award (yes, there are awards for Twitter advertising!) for her high profile promotion on twitter for the AMC show “Madmen.” She developed a persona on twitter as a character from the show and amassed a 12000 person following immediately. Her story is truly amazing and an inspiration to those of us who hate the “clipping my cats toenails” tweets (a message sent in twitter) and LOVE the concept of using Twitter for information, networking, and entertainment.

If you visit the Advertising Age website, , you can see the 9 minute interview with Carrie Bugbee. She shares some great ideas about promotion through Twitter. Add me as a friend on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, it’s the best way to catch me!
