As you may have noticed, MSPmentor has a new sister site: MSPtweet. But what exactly is MSPtweet and how does it serve managed services providers (MSPs) and the global managed services ecosystem? Here are some preliminary answers.
First, let me be clear: MSPtweet and VARtweet (a close cousin) are online but in beta mode for 2009. We expect to make several changes/enhancements before officially "launching" the sites to readers and sponsors in early 2010. But the missions are fully baked.
- MSPtweet offers readers the loudest tweets in the managed services industry. The microblog site allows established and aspiring MSPs to follow multiple managed services conversations -- quickly and easily -- from a single dashboard. Readers can view vendor and expert updates and communications directly, without a media company filtering or interpreting the messages.
- VARtweet (spun off from The VAR Guy) is cut from the same cloth as MSPtweet but serves a slightly different audience. VARtweet allows channel chiefs and IT channel leaders to interact directly with Nine Lives Media Inc.'s growing channel readership.
