To Tweet or Not to Tweet?

Reading Webguild’s article on how to use Twitter, I thought I would write my own post about how I use it and what is my experience with it so far.

You can follow me on Twitter at this address: http://twitter.com/njamin

As you can see, I currently use it as a way to publish information like articles I find interesting, some cool tips, things I am doing at work, share some thoughts and share the love (sometimes hate, too). That’s the one side of it.

The second side is that I can follow other people. People who for example focus on posting technology news, links to project management articles, French cuisine recipes, photography tips, computer games reviews and so on… And that’s the interesting part: I get these short messages directly delivered to me (per IM).

On one hand I am always getting content on stuff I am interested in, and on the other hand I share my discoveries with other people – the former being the most addictive part of it all. If you are keen on learning new things, Twitter could be a good place to start!

My verdict so far – Yes to Twitter, but abusing the service could impact severely on productivity as there is a lot of noise on Twitter! Select carefully who you are going to follow!
