As someone who has been dipping their (lurking) toe into Twitter recently (and to extend the metaphor needlessly: pulling it out rather regularly), I’ve been interested to read some opinions on this, our latest source of information overload…
Allan Jenkins points to a very interesting story on Ragan: "How to use Twitter (and whether to bother)" [There’s an interesting video vignette from Shel Holtz as a sidebar to the article as well as a lot of commentary at the end of the post]
Allan also provides some of his own thoughts on using Twitter.
PS: If you are kicking Twitter’s tyres you might also be interested in Darren Rowse’s post: "How I Use Twitter to Promote my Blog".
PPS: TechCrunch has called out an interesting new Twitter service: Quotably. Quotably turns the Twitter stream into a threaded conversation. [Disclosure I haven’t had time to test it, but for an old fart like me it sounds like a great idea 🙂 .]
