Social networking now isn’t exclusive of people wanting to connect and share their lives with their family, friends, and loved ones; now organizations and companies are using tools like Twitter.com to constantly keep their followers/supporters/customers updated on the fly!

Definitely want to keep the keyboards sterile.
