Welcome to episode #229 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. I don't think you should follow back everyone on Twitter who decides to follow you. It didn't seem like a big deal to say it. It turns out it was. Mark W. Schaefer (over at Grow) had a great Blog post titled, Bringing Down The Twitter Snobs, that ran contrary to a post I had published titled, Being A Twitter Snob Is A Good Thing. It's not the first time we've had discourse over a hot topic (in fact, we debated Ghost Blogging right here: SPOS #214 - The Ghost Blogging Debate With Mark W. Schaefer). I like debating Mark. He's not a Social Media Guru - and you know the kind of "guru" I am talking about. He's a professional and an educator with real experience and a great perspective on all things Marketing and Communications. As you can tell by the comments on both of our Blog posts, this is a hot topic. We decided to take the gloves off and discuss it, right here. Enjoy the conversation... Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast - Episode #229 - Host: Mitch Joel. Running time: 44:58.

Julien Smith - In Over Your Head - Co-author of Trust Agents. Mark W. Schaefer over at Grow had a great post titled, Bringing Down The Twitter Snobs. Mark's post had a reference to a Blog post of mine titled, Being A Twitter Snob Is A Good Thing. In fact, his post was so good, that it caused some great conversation in the comment section on both of our Blogs. From there, we figured that it would be best to debate and discuss our discourse about Twitter right here. This is our conversation/debate/agreement/hope for the future. This week's music: David Usher (with Marie Mai) - 'Je Repars' (in French). Download the Podcast here: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast - Episode #229 - Host: Mitch Joel.
