I am still playing with Twitter and still figuring out what to do with it. And I am not the only one (see Bryan
). I still have a lot of questions and certainly there are a lot of possibilities.
So I just start with a personal perspective. First of all I have to decide on the audience. Is Twitter for the world? for my friends? or just for myself. Or should I combine these audiences? Or create separate Twitter feeds. That is all to much in one go, so I just start with a feed for myself.
And what should I post in Twitter? It should be different from my blogs, it should be different from my del.icio.us feed, so what is left? I could post the actions that I do or have done, but I am not sure that is interesting. For that I use already my blog diairy and I do not really need more details. Or I could post the places I am, but that seems a lot of detail as well. So I am left with miscellaneous thoughts that I have. Thoughts for which I do not have to work upon and create a blog entry. So I will experiment with that for a while.
I still am looking for feeds by 'friends' that are worthwhile to follow. I look to see who uses this as a publishing/story medium.
