Using Screenleap.com Nguyen let his more than 2,000 followers have unfettered access to his personal computer screen. On it, Tweetdeck was open in all its glory.

hey everyone, tweet me and I will feature your tweet to my dozens of viewers bit.ly/wv7y8X— Dan Nguyen (@dancow) February 1, 2012

Would you do something like this with your Twitter followers?
