So there’s this site that allows you to quickly and easily communicate with lots of people at once. Maybe you’ve heard of it? I’ve never been a fan or thought it was very useful, but I’ve found that I actually use it more and more to find instant information. Google integrated it’s search results with Twitter to get real time results, but since removed it. Nevertheless, it’s a great source for information and seems like a good way to be in touch.
I’ve been thinking about it for awhile, and think I’m ready to take the plunge. Sometimes I have little day to day MicroStrategy experiences that are interesting but not “blog worthy”, and that would be a neat place to put those and perhaps with some feedback from you all, they could grow to something better. I also get some off-topic questions in the Comments section of random posts, and it seems like posting some form of contact method would be beneficial, so feel free to hit me up on Twitter with any questions, comments or your own adventures.

Finally, if you’ve avoided Twitter like I have over the years, you don’t need an account or software to make use of it. As I mentioned earlier, you can still just check out the direct URL and read/monitor that way much in the same way you would read this Blog. I’ll also add a feed to the right side of the blog so you can see everything in one place.
Overall, it’s just a new (to me) technology to play with, and we’ll see where it goes.
What do you think about it now that you’ve had a few months to play with it?
Still not really a fan. I only tend to use it as a fancy RSS in both producing and consuming content. I don’t find it very easy to engage since you can’t give positive feedback other than retweeting and it’s very difficult to hold a conversation. I see that the media loves it because it’s all public so it’s easy to data mine, but aside from being a large stream of advertisements, I still don’t really see what all the fuss is about.
