Australia’s biggest telco closed down their corporate blog nowwearetalking without warning yesterday — and deleted all the content. While I can understand they want to put the often-controversial forum behind them, I think the move was a mistake.
I’ve already written about this for Crikey, Telstra consigns nowwearetalking to the memory hole.
