There Will Be Tweets: ExxonMobil is on Twitter

twitter.gifTwitter is the home of micro-blogging.

Members write text-based posts or “tweets” that are up to 140 characters long “for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?” Or another simple question, “What corporate spin are you pushing?”

I know readers will be eager to “Join today to start receiving ExxonMobilCorp’s updates.” Heck, you might want to send the oil giant some of your own tweets as Desmogblog suggests (see “Is ExxonMobil following you on Twitter?“)

If nothing else, this proves ExxonMobil’s profits are too large, since they can afford to pay some PR stooge staffer to push this drivel, assuming these tweets are genuine and not some clever campaign to make the oil company look (even more) inane:
