Building Great Software

The twitter bird

leave a comment »

So twitter is part interesting, complete waste of time and useful. Watching the threads of conversation stream through Witty or the web interface can give you some great insights but can be exhausting if you try to constantly follow every thread.

One minute you might hear about how frequent a .Net developer’s wife’s contractions are, the next Scott Bellware may elucidate his followers with some wise-sounding statement and in the background there is general chatter about how the Seattle Code Camp is going.

The key is to follow the right people and generally just watch the conversations. When you have the time you can put in your 2 cents or update people with what you’re up to.

Whether you love it, tolerate it or just hate it; likely the most common thing you will see is the twitter bird. I hope they can bring the beat back more often considering how often the service goes down (but hey, it’s free so they can get away with that right?). I’ve been wondering what exactly they are “shuffling” around.

So now I ask you, how much more inane can blogging get considering I’m blogging about twittering?
