Ghost Tweeting: Appropriate or not? What are your thoughts?

Ghost Tweeting: Appropriate or not? What are your thoughts?

I just read an article by Mike McDonald at Web Pro News where he talks about an interesting and debatable subject: Ghost Tweeting.

Ghostwriting has been a staple of business and academia for ages. In fact, it is a standard practice across industries, in both professional and personal writing, in the form of bylines, press releases, articles, books, etc.  So why is ghost tweeting - tweeting on another person's behalf - any different? 

Is there something about Twitter - the micro-platform that packs a big communications punch - that makes it seem less appropriate for ghosting? What are your thoughts?

Letitia -

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Of course, I didn't write this comment.  My ghost writer did. : )

I think its alright especially if you are wanting to continually post new content everyday. Some days it would be impossible to keep posting (posting valuble content) and do you work too. So having a ghost writer would solve this issue. How often do you tweet. I do like the fact that active rain will post a tweet everyting you post a new blog entry.

Depends on your intent is. If you were tweeting as you then I would expec that you are actually tweeting not someone else. If you were a company then I would expect the company is tweeting which could be the employee. So, are you tweeting as you or as a brand.
