Permission to Tweet

I'm seeing an interesting phenomenon developing in business meetings and business social settings.

Granting the permission to tweet.

We've become such a culture of sharing, and when it comes to our own industry many of us like to share what we are participating in and discussing with our colleagues.  It's become a part of what we do.

But we do have to remind ourselves that we are often in confidential situations - even when they are somewhat "social" in nature.  Business dinners, networking parties, industry seminars.  Some of those topics are just not "shareable" and in fact we should ask permission if we intend to post the discussions.  Some of our colleagues may not want specific information shared.

So it's become protocol to ask permission, or if you are host to grant permission to share the content.  It's just the right thing to do these days.

What's your experience?  Jim.
