Forget about Twitter, Let's talk BlogHer and Battlestar
Well, I've been twittering for the last week or so, and I am going to put this one squarely in the "different strokes for different folks" category. It just doesn't consume me the way it clearly has so many others.
I don't blog in bursts. My posts tend to be longer, essay-type posts, rather than short newsy commentary. So, Twitter couldn't be a replacement for my blog. That said, I do see two benefits to a Twitter network of reasonable size. First, it should tend to cut down on the one-two line emails, either to one individual or a group of friends, and the one-two line back-and-forth comments that sometimes occur on blogs. Instead, just "twit it." Second, if you are looking for a source or a reference, and just can't find what you need, Twitter allows you to tap into the collective mind more quickly than other tools. So I'll keep "twitting" once or twice a day and watch where it goes. More thoughts from Elisa Camahort, Jeneane Sessum, Phil Gomes.
Enough about Twitter. BlogHer Business is this Thursday and Friday in NYC. Registration closes tonight at midnight. Lots of great sessions, including one on the social media press release. It will be interesting to see if this panel can answer my question about how the proposed new formats help us deliver better content.
And finally, my fellow Battlestar fans -- has it rocked this month or what? Reminds me of the show I initially fell in love with more than it has in a while, although I have not disliked this season as much as others have :-) I am of course totally spoiled for the last episode. Email me if you want to know <evil grin>
