How Twitter Helped Me Connect and Why You Should Follow Me

I have been a sluggish adopter of Twitter.  While I had an account for quite a long time the notion to use Twitter in a productive, conversational and outreach manner wasn’t there.

Why would you use Twitter to post up useful bits of information about your day?  Let’s see what that looks like:

Let’s not do that.

The more I reach out into the Twittersphere and connect with other like-minded individuals the more resources I have at my disposal.  Some of my favorite bloggers are on Twitter (Chris Guillebeau, Clay Collins, Problogger) and I enjoy reading what they read and I’ve managed to find other excellent bloggers through them in this way.

Throughout the day I get a feed of interesting links that some of the most creative and off-the-wall people are reading or looking at.  I re-tweet (lingo for repost) the ones I find useful or inspirational in hopes that others I am connected to can find something valuable as well.

So, you should follow me on Twitter.  If you don’t use Twitter, I don’t necessarily advocate starting unless you are going to get involved with it.  It is easy to over-reach in the social networking world and if you can’t keep on top of your Facebook or even your e-mail, twitter might not be for you.

If you want to learn more about Twitter there a number of resources out there but one of my favorites is Twitip also by Darren Rowse over at Problogger.
