I agree about the benefits of twitter. I've connected up with a few folks with similar musical interests/tastes, learned about simplifymedia.com through them and am now sharing itunes libraries with quite a few people.

I've been inspired by Matt Bowen has his Minute of Music which I wouldn't have known about except via twitter.

I think what people don't get most about twitter is that each person needs to determine what they want from their Twitter network and who will get them there. I have a strange mix of professional (Plone, librarians), local folks I don't know in person, and personal interest connections.

One way to accomplish that is by learning some basic Twitter tricks -- most of which I figured out from using the TweetDeck client -- it gives the user several Twitter panes where you can see who has replied directly to you in one pane, your Twitter friends in another, various searches in another (e.g. plone), etc. I also turned off email notifications of who is following me. If you respond to me (@), I'll see it and will probably add you back. Otherwise, forget about it ;-)


This is a really great top ten list, I am stil trying to figure out how to best leverage Twitter. It is such a great concept and well executed website. I'm really enjoying all the new apps that are coming out for it too. You can post this to our site https://www.toptentopten.com/ and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
