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.
My first tweets:
All of them posted from this internet cafe in India. If someone buys me an iphone or googlephone you’ll be even better informed. Just send the cash via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
