  • Our presentation is going to be very ADD, just like Twitter is.
  • “ So why has Twitter been so misunderstood? Because it's experiential. Scrolling through random Twitter messages can't explain the appeal. You have to do it – and more important, do it with friends.” -- Clive Thompson, Wired 15.07

  • Follow unto others as you would have them do unto you. @comment others to make the most of the experience. Link to your stuff — smartly . Frequently linking to your stuff leads to unfollows. Besides, it defeats tweet purpose. Don’t take non-responses personally . Conversations fly on Twitter, so people might miss it or simply receive too many @replies to respond to every single one. Be patient in getting the hang of Twitter. Twitter’s help is helpless and it has a few quirks for a simple app. Avoid addiction by taking care in using addicting apps like Twhirl and other cool Twittapps or else Twitter will suck you in for more time than you can afford. I curb addiction by checking in twice a day (start and end of day) and no in-between (except weekends). Use your name or else people won’t know who you are. I started with Content Maven and no face photo. Hey, I didn’t know better at the time.
