PR Peeps Poll: Twitter is the social medium of choice

The October PR Peeps poll results are in and it appears that Twitter is the social medium of choice for professional communicators. 

Out of 460 who answered the question, “Do you tweet, blog, neither or both?” a hefty 191 tweet, only 15 blog, 112 do neither and 140 do both.

These stats reflect what we’re hearing from the investor relations community in recent polls, webinars and conversations.   Several investor relations polls suggest that as they weigh social media options, IR folks, usually more conservative than their PR brethren, are jumping on the Twitter train since it presumeably doesn’t take as much time as creating blog content.

The results are interesting given that it wasn’t that long ago that we were debating whether to blog or not.  Seems the question has been answered:  you’re Twittering instead.
