Twitter Followers

I’ve been posting tweets as events_ottawa on Twitter for the Ottawa Events site. Some people use an app like TweetDeck to show the results of searches and having a “what’s going on this weekend” very sporadic post is, I think, useful – more useful than the spam that some of the other event type sites generate, listing every single thing going on. This means I’m editorializing somewhat, but in my opinion that’s adding value.

I’ve been posting to Twitter more often than I’ve been posting to my blog – although even that isn’t that often. Twitter takes away the requirement that I write enough to make a real blog post – it’s more like IM than blogging.

It’s fun tweeting but I have no idea why anyone would follow me.
