Tag connections and companies in your LinkedIn status updates

Last week, LinkedIn announced the introduction of an item that’s been at the top of my wishlist for a long time.

On Thursday, LinkedIn said it’s rolling out a feature that will let users tag their connections and companies they’re following in status updates. That means you can more easily start conversations with those you know and have a better expectation of them joining in. The feature also promises seamless integration with Twitter, converting LinkedIn user names into Twitter handles/at replies.

The slideshow below includes examples of what to expect. If you don’t have this feature yet, you will soon. When you do, let me know what you think–either via a comment here, or by tagging me in a LinkedIn status update.
