This presentation was delivered as an introduction to a panel on “Open Brands” at the Twitter 140 conference in Mountain View, CA. Representatives from Dominos, JetBlue, Ebay, and Intuit sat on the panel and provided great insights in their corporate use of Twitter. Also, thanks to all the great people who voted for the Open Brand ‘unconference’ session to make this happen.
Presentation Description: Twitter is pushing radical transparency on brand management. Check out recent corporate case studies in Twitter use, and learn key strategies/practices in Social Media. If you’ve heard me speak before, I added some new content in this presentation specific for the Twitter audience: Twitter-specific case studies and reorganized/focused slides on the key Twitter concepts. Hope you enjoy it!

Do you know the environmental impact of that steak you bought at Whole Foods? Do you have any idea how much electricity your PC is using when you leave it on all night? Should you tell the grocery clerk plastic or paper? What if your cellphone could tell you the greener choice in each case?
