Virtualization is one possible business strategy of an organization. The nature of virtual organizations is that individuals or teams are distributed over different work sites. This leads to barriers in communication, coordination and collaboration between these entities due to dispersed expertise, time zones, languages, cultures, etc. To address these issues, virtual organizations have invested in ICT for supporting collaboration between cross-site colleagues. One very new collaborative technology is microblogging. Microblogging supports asynchronous communication between multiple persons.
