Late last year I changed my Facebook status to read "Why should I use Twitter
?" Within five minutes, Matt Herzberger
had a post on my wall
with some resources to get me started. So I decided to take the plunge and have been mildly tweeting (twittering ?) ever sense.
Last December, a social media expert and blogger, Jeremiah Owyang, asked all of his readers to connect in Twitter through his blog
. Me and hundreds of others took this opportunity to network with other like-minded users.
Since then, the conversations and insight have exploded. I have been able to track the latest and greatest news before it hits the RSS feeds. I have been enriched by everything I have taken in. On the flip side, I have shared a few thoughts but have yet to contribute at a level equal to the value I receive.
One of my complaints so far is the lack of connections I have made with Higher Ed Developers. I have talked and discussed with a few dozen users, but I haven't seen a consistent thread of conversations related to our industry. Do you use Twitter? Would you like to connect with other Twitter users? As the Ning network expands
, and the IRC channel grows, is there room for Twitter?
You can follow my tweets at: http://twitter.com/smeranda
. If you follow me, I will follow you back. If you would like to connect with more twitter users, leave your twitter ID in the comments. If a list grows, I will add them to this post and the Ning Network.
