Twitter. Oh God.

Thanks to the prodding of Danny Sullivan, I am now on Twitter. God help me. It might mean the beginning of another Searchblog like obsession. I remember when folks said "you blog nearly every day? How do you possibly find the time?!" More when I learn more. Update: It's…

  1. Congrats! (and “sorry”). You’ll get used to it–I went kicking and screaming too. How do we follow?

    Best,
    Joel

  2. John,

    To really be Twittering you need to follow someone. Right now you’re simply blogging in 140 characters. It’s a one-way medium for you right now. Try following only real world friends (just ~20 or so) and see if it hooks you.

  3. John,

    Also be sure to bookmark Summize.com–twitter search for tracking keywords, monitoring trends, threading conversations, translating tweets, filtering by language, real-time updates, attitude search, sentiment detection (in labs.summize.com) and much, much more.

  4. Well John, this just happens to be my last Twitter post and I was not originally one of those Twitter geeks…

    “ok I said last post of the day but was wrong M Baker @firefox is right. We don’t just browse the internet, we live on the internet”

    You are caught in the Twitter web now.

  5. John, what Andrew and Rick say: you need to follow people. Twitter really becomes interesting as a way to keep an eye on what your friends/contacts are doing, rather than just a soapbox to express stuff through.

    It’s about conversation!
