Regulars to this community know I have urged CIOs to use Twitter. In this video, SAP Oliver Bussmann explains to Forbes reporter Kym McNicholas why he Tweets. Twitter helps CIOs stay on top of technology trends from who they follow and in turn emerge as an opinion leader and first mover by Tweeting. SAP Oliver Bussmann urges CIOs to use Twitter with a few simple rules: be “honest and fair.” And refrain from Tweeting personal stuff and throwing darts at your competition. 

He presently has 3,717 followers, follows 323 and has Tweeted 3,507 times as of this writing. Click on @sapcio if you are interested in following him.
