Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin attended the late "Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini's funeral Thursday morning, but while they were among mourners at the New York City church, Hilaria's Twitter account appeared to remain active.
GwynethJones's insight:

--Cautionary Tale! Be careful & mindful WHEN you Tweet! Even if you're patiently & quietly waiting in a meeting, or heaven forbid a funeral -- even if you're trying to assuage your ADD, it just looks plain TACKY  And with timestamps you are sure to be caught Tweet handed!

All Hands on Deck Social Media - translates to schools & districts, too! 

 

What would happen if ALL teachers teachers POSITIVELY blogged, Tweeted, or shared the triumphs of their kiddos & classrooms just

ONCE A WEEK? Or ONCE A DAY?

 

What would the community learn? What would the kids feel?

 

What kind of positive good Karma wave would we be able to ride? Just thinkin!

These are more like keyboard shortcuts than like features and benefits to be used when advising clients. However, you can learn how to prevent sharing of a Google+ post (although I can't see many scenarios where that would be needed if you're a business with a Google+ presence).

ShadowMe App Lets You Pretend to Be Someone Else on Twitter

ShadowMe App Lets You Pretend to Be Someone Else on Twitter | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

"ShadowMe" is a new app that allows you to "lurk" on Twitter as any user of your choice. 

 

This doesn't mean that you can sign in as anyone and tweet for them, but it does allow you to see the tweets from their followers and what comes up in their timeline. Apparently, it works equally well for celebrities or accounts with 10 followers.

 

This could be interesting for marketers who want to find out what interests their customers by seeing their custom build Twitter stream, but I somehow feel like it would be used a little more casually than that and is probably just a little useless.
