What’s H&R Block doing with Social Media? Cool stuff, it turns out….

Advertising Age just posted an article and a peek into what H&R Block is doing with social media this tax season–Inside H&R Block’s Social Media Marketing Blitz. Now H&R Block is sharing what they tried, what they kicked to the curb and what they learned in their efforts to use social media in a way that works.

Totally useful list of Seattle who’s-who on Twitter

Monica Guzman (@moniguzman) from the Seattle PI and a very familiar face on Twitter has compiled a list of who in Seattle is Tweeting, with their easy click-thru-to-follow handles and everything.  Check the list out at The Big Blog on the PI–bet you find some good leads to follow (and you can follow Big Blog tweets here).

And some surprises too: who knew The Rat City Roller Girls were tweeting? And just about every hood has its own Twitter account, West Seattle, Ballard, South Lake Union, Cap Hill..the list goes on.  All kinda stuff, and more all the time.  We loves us some Big Blog.
