    I've just spent three days at the IMR gold event in the UK hearing about how twitter can really explode your business. Andy Brown of http://www.homeofgolf.tv gave a superb and in depth profile of how he uses the power of twitter as the central engine in his business.

    Other big names like Kodak are using teitter to contact and to listen to customers directly. Is this the new face of social media?
