Twitter isn’t for everyone. So, if it’s not for you, stop reading now.
Recently, I created an account for this blog; if you want to follow, it’s theappslab, natch.
Not sure why it took me so long to do that, but it’s there now. So, the obvious follow up question was what should we do with this account?
I’ve never thought that reposting all my blog posts to Twitter was very interesting or useful. Can’t say we need the extra promotion, since we’re not selling ads or trying to generate more traffic. Still, Dan’s reasoning was sound. He suggested that Twitter would offer a notification that we had a new post here, reminding him to read.
Which is good, considering that those of us who read feeds tend to get behind, and this offers another way for people to interact. So, I’ve installed Twitter Tools a plugin written by Alex King; for now, we’re just using the publish posts to Twitter option, but if this gets popular, there are other features I can enable.
So, if you like follow theappslab, and you’ll get a tweet each time we post. I’ll be monitoring if you want to tweet @theappslab. You can thank Dan, or generally sound off about this experiment in the comments.
Maybe you have other ideas about what we can do with the Twitter account. Add those too.
Incidentally, we had a boo-boo over the weekend, but we’re better now. Sorry about the extended downtime.
