I read your blog entry about re-organizing Twitter. What did you mean by that, if you don't mind me asking?
I've been re-evaluating how I use it- or more accurately, how I want to use it, myself. So when I saw your entry I thought I would inquire and see what your thinking was about it.
Thanks for the question, Janice. I look forward to killing... wait. Sorry. Ninja moment. Twitter is a cool tool and I'm imminently fascinated by things which I think are cool, and I really dig on telling you people about them here. But coolness wears off after a while. Honestly, the same thing happened to Twitter.
But I think I fixed it.
Look, I'm a busy guy. We're all busy people. One more thing to keep tabs on? I don't need it. But one more potential communication device? Now there's something I won't shy away from. And if it's a device that I can (and this is critical) choose to ignore when I don't have the time, we're into Groovy Land.
So that's how I've re-organized Twitter. My contact list has been paired down to those whom I have a vested interest in hearing from. Some I know, some I don't. But all of them post things that I may want to hear about -- when I choose to look. I don't feel the need to go back in time and see what I missed. I don't feel the need to look up every time Twitterific chimes at me. And I don't obsess over what I might be missing. Nope. It's an on/off situation for me. And I'm comfortable with it. I'll still communicate (still do communicate) out to all of you who have friended me -- thanks for doing that, by the way. I'll do my level best to make sure I only push out something when I have something worth saying.
