A Twitter Confession

April 12th, 2012 · 3 Comments · online marketing, social media

I do not Tweet.

Being a good Tweeter requires an enormous commitment of time, one I doubt I will ever be ready to make, even if I suddenly become a lot more interesting.

However, this is not to say that I dislike Twitter. In fact, I love the tool and use it every day, mostly via Flipboard.

Twitter as Learning Tool

Twitter is precisely as good as the people you follow. Follow interesting people who tweet interesting things you care about and you will get a lot out of it. Whether that is Jeremiah Owyang or Justin Bieber depends entirely on what you do with your spare time, I guess.

Below you can find some of the people I follow, in no particular order.

and Neil deGrasse Tyson because he is awesome.

Here is who most people follow.

    I do tweet, though only occasionally. I do so mostly because I want to reach some friends not on facebook. All my tweets are automatically posted to fb. Of the two social networking channels fb is the clear winner, IMO.
