We’ve been punked.
Yesterday, Phil Jackson joined twitter and his first tweet was interesting to say the least.
It got the twitterverse buzzing. Was Jackson drunk? Did he suffer a stroke? Are his fingers too fat?
As it turns out, it was a piece of viral marketing from AOL.
Brilliant piece of viral marketing if you ask me, and it sure beats getting a barrage of useless floppy disks every month in the mail.
One caveat though, it is great to get people talking about AOL, but what exactly are they selling? The service? A site? Annoying dial up sounds? Its only good marketing if it actually sells something.
