#MDM is dead, long live #XXX

When tweeting about Master Data Management (MDM) it has been custom to use the #MDM hashtag.

However you sometimes have seen other subjects tagged with #MDM, often in other languages than English as for example “Matin de Merde”.

But now #MDM has been completely taken over by the Tourism Queensland (Australia) Million Dollar Memo campaign.

So, Master Data Management tweeps: Do we have to find a new hashtag?.

Is #MasterDataManagement too long?

Other suggestions?

    Ah, the joy of hashtags!

    #MasterDataManagement definitely looks too long to me. Is #MasterData enough?

    #MDMGMT is ok but I can’t get the summer version out of my head now! #MDMBST

    @_cantabile_‘s suggestion is quite catchy too… #madama

    Or why not stick with #MDM? Is the Million Dollar Memo campaign going to last that long?

    Thanks James and Phillippe.

    Maybe #MDMUTC could be a compromise 🙂

    Also the coming Wednesday the #DataKnightsJam tweet jam is suggested to be about Master Data Management with the #MDM hashtag.

    And actually last Wednesday there was a North American daylight savings and UTC conversion time scam with that jam.

    Henrik,

    This could have the makings of a good on-line Scrabble game, but where you have to use three specific letters in any word – D, M & M.

    We could always flood Twitter with enough true MDM messages to make the Aussies shut up….

    Hi Henrik

    How about #MDATM #MDATA

    For really fanatical Master Data Management practitioners (that probably means all of them) we could use #42 which, in The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is the answer to “Life, the Universe and everything”

    Regards
    John

    John, what is the question ? LOL #42 is in !!! just kidding.

    Henrik, #MDM hmmmm… so how do other TLA’s (Three Letter Acronyms) handle it ? Do we just go with it ? What about those who enter the market for the first time, how would they find us ?

    Well, I like John Dunedin’s suggestion. #42, but if you go with #MData, or others suggested, I am sure it will be ok.. but #masterdatamanagement is way to long… just like #datagovernance (try typing that 10 times a day ) 🙂

    I look forward to the tweet jam on this. wondering what will be come of our beloved #mdm hash

    could we go with #therealMDM ? LOL

    thanks for posting…. TTFN (ta ta for now) 🙂

    I’m sticking with #MDM and betting that the Million Dollar Memo thing is a flash in the pan, here today gone tomorrow!

    Thanks Julian, John, Garnie and Dan.

    I’ll also expect that the Master Data Management Summit Europe 2011 this week is going to produce a lot of Master Data Management #MDM tagged tweets.
