Hot trending topic around the Lotus community on twitter tonight: #StuffIMBersSay. All kinds of things IBM people have said that are silly, funny or simply plain absurd. Good fun and definitely worth reading! It was started by two IBM’ers as a joke apparently but spread around the world in hours, reaching thousands of IBM’ers, business partners and customers.

Humor is the best way to communicate, Social Media is the perfect platform. That was definitely proven tonight!

Small selection of those tweets below. Spotting a trend here….There is a lot of web and phone conferences going on!

  1. You spotted right, I can't remember the last time I was at a face to face meeting because the people I work with live all over the world.

  2. It shows! And makes for a lot of funny incidents 🙂 Have really been (and still are!) enjoying this hashtag. Always good when a company has a sense of humor and isn't afraid to show it!
