A time to tweet

Posted by jembendell on January 20, 2010

I didn’t want to sign up to Twitter because I thought it mad to want to blurt out stuff about what you are doing every minute of the day.

I see that Ricky Gervais and Steven Fry are quitting it, getting tired of blah blahing about things.

But during COP15 I realised twitter is a useful tool. As I clicked on the tag #COP15 it provided a form of real-time human-managed search engine, through the use of tinyurl.com or other forms of linking to webpages from twitter. Thus I saw it a great way to share your own work on matters of topical discussion.

So, I wont be tweeting about what I had for breakfast or who I met at lunch. But for another way to share what myself and my colleagues at Lifeworth are doing or putting out.

After I sent my first tweets I got 4 new followers in a minute.  Thanks guys.
