Geni has recently started using Twitter, a microblogging service, to keep current and potential Geni users up to date with the latest Geni news. In return, Twitter users are able to relay feedback to the Geni Team and other Twitter users. We have found that this communication tool has helped improve our relationship with Geni users who are also on Twitter. One recent and very positive Tweet (what updates on Twitter are called), was from Jason Calacanis,a successful and well known internet entrepreneur.

Here is what he had to say:
