Disruptive technologies and the rise of competitors creates a shift and acceleration of change that you may or may not like. The nay-sayer state: things are changing too fast, I wish it was like – eh, the good ‘ol days again. The yeah-sayers state: Let’s rock and roll!

The ability to retweet links and resources with the Tweetmeme function in a blog (like this) adds ease of use and simplicity for retweets. Recently, Twitter came to the marketplace with an updated piece of software functionality via the new Twitter Button.
