I have been experimenting with Twitter for a week or so. I am still not certain what I think. Letting folks know what I am doing on a regular basis does not come naturally. BTW – I am in MSP, babysitting, and watching the Twins game. Twins are down to NYY.
I have also decided that I develop a different opinion when following individuals by Twitter and by blog. Over the years, I have focused on certain bloggers and have a high opinion of those I read on a regular basis. My reaction to their Twitter posts (if that is what the brief comments are called) has been very different. I get the impression they are trying too hard. I think big name bloggers are not the appropriate test cases for evaluating this tool. These folks don’t really interact and reading their short comments is not that interesting.
I will have to give it a little more time. Perhaps with a few more followers I will form a different opinion. I am guessing “regular folk” may use Twitter in a different way. I am guessing I will also have to do a better job of contributing to benefit much in return. BTW – I am “grabe” on Twitter.
I am experimenting with a new plugin (tagaroo) from Calais. The service is supposed to suggest useful tags. So far I am not impressed. The suggestion was “twins”. Perhaps I have said nothing the intelligent agent can interpret.
Wait – tagaroo generated intelligent agent.
