Twitter – is it really worth my time?
I have to admit that initially I thought that no TWITTER was not for me. Still I jumped in and after a slow start am now finding more reasons to “tweet”. After investing the time to discover & “follow” others with similar interest, I am now finding it to be a really useful medium to stay connected with a likeminded community. I also like the ability to “shout out” when something needs to be said & there is nobody close by to hear me rant 🙂
Professionally, I’m looking at using Yammer to collaborate with a distinct user group here at work – will let you know how it goes….
Actually, thinking further about this Twitter business, I think there are a couple of key points to make it work –
* Follow a theme or core topic for the majority of your posts. That way it ensures relevance for your Followers
* The occasional candid comment is ok, but who really cares about these trivial things?
* Post frequently, even several times/day
* And share information that maybe of value to your community
