Twitter is a conversation. Twitter is an RSS feed. Twitter is inspiration. Twitter is the pulse.
Twitter is different things to different people. One of the reasons @TechCocktail loves Twitter so hard is for insightful business discourse – and naturally we want to share what we enjoy. Every Monday, we’ll be bringing you the top seven startup-related tweets of the past week.
Are you sharing valuable (or occasionally whimsical) business insight? Follow Tech Cocktail on Twitter and use the #TC7 hashtag when talking startups. We’ll find you.
