I’m happy to report that I have a fun second job at the moment, and it involves helping to run a site you may be interested in. I’m the editor/curator/call-me-what-you-will at ExecTweets IT, an expansion of a popular existing site called ExecTweets. They’re both operated by my friends and business partners at Federated Media, and you may remember the splash that ExecTweets made when it debuted earlier this year.
ExecTweets’ original incarnation was aimed at business executives; ExecTweets IT is aimed at the IT pros who make technology work within those executives’ businesses. We’ve hand-picked a few hundred Twitter users of interest to IT pros–CTOs, CIOs, and tech experts of all sorts–and created a unified tweetstream. You can browse by topics (such as Virtualization or Security) or search on the IT-related keyword of your choosing.
We’ve also added some new features aimed at helping IT types share advice and opinions:
We also have an ExecTweets Twitter account that more than 1.1 million folks follow. Join ’em, and you’ll get links to worthwhile info at ExecTweets and elsewhere around the Web about IT and executive stuff.
If you’re an IT pro or other interested party, please check ExecTweets IT out and let me know what you think. We’re just getting started, and are itching to get feedback that can help us make the site even more useful. And here’s FM’s blog post with more information about the whole project.
