Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

Jpraup and Livinginclip, I'm following both of you guys now.

Twitter really is one of those things where if you either don't use it much or don't talk to anyone on it, it seems utterly useless. If you do though (as you should...it's "social media" for a reason, people) then it can be pretty invaluable to some folks.

Me? I use it as both a mini blog or sorts as well as a sounding board for random thoughts/questions and to join in on conversations. I've met some really cool people through it.

Just my $.02...

You also had more or less given up on it for a while back in the late spring. I'm following again. :-)

Yeah I know. You got sick of all the "issues" the site was having with reliability and all that. Things are vastly improved in that area, and you should use it again...bastard. ;-)

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

This sums twitter up nicely:

<object width="480" height="295"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/NlZcHwsa6CU&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/NlZcHwsa6CU&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="295"></embed></object>

I'm on twitter but I'm trying to use it as a micro-blog and challenging myself to encapsulate thoughts within 160 characters.

Honestly I think this is the worst, most stupid, pointless site ever.

I heartily agree.

What do you think about Twitter though?

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

Twitter can have its purposes. I have left newspaper work and have transitioned into online reporting. In doing so, I have found that prospective employers ask if I am on MySpace/Facebook/Twitter/etc. So I am on all three.
If you would like to follow me on Twitter go to
http://twitter.com/doubledown44
It would certainly help me in my job searches if I had some "followers."

Thanks,

Sean

Anyone who "follows" me on Twitter, gets reciprocated. That's how I roll.

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

I twitter, but I usually don't have much to say. Since most of my time is business-related, and I'm not going to bitch about my own business in public, there's not much else to talk about.

But if you're interested anyway...

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

Twitter has worked out great. I can immediately post links to the stories I write and there is no more waiting for my readers.

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

Just checked out this site last night, thinking I had better stay on top of the hot new internet fad. Then surprised to see this thread that started in 2007. From the looks of things, I haven't been missing out on much.

It can be a useful tool. You can get a lot of info quickly. I got a new Iron Man 2 set pic through Jon Favreau on Twitter.

Re: Anyone here on Twitter?

Went ahead and am now following doubledown44, Mopower Liver&Onions and darkflounder. My tweets are a mix of observations, quotes, questions, info, links, really a whole bunch of everything. So yeah...there you have it.
