Other than reading the headline may suggest, no, I don’t want to artificially increase my number of Twitter followers. But I often get asked which way is the best to approach me with your project pitch. As I was thinking about it, I noticed that many of the conversations I have had over the years started like the one I just finished an hour or so ago.
It was a very interesting Skype call with Matthew Burr, one of the co-founders of Nomadic.fm. How did he manage to get ahead on the list of people I want to talk to? The answer is simple: he just followed me on Twitter. As a side note: Nomadic.fm is now my favorite startup of 2013 so far.
