There's already been some interesting discussion about just how useful RSS is for work purposes. I know it works for some, but personally I subscribe to very few health / library related feeds, and half of them get deleted en masse unread. Twitter on the other hand, seems promising.
Since last Monday I have:
- Started tweeting (again. The first time I tried I was told by a friend that I sounded "bored". This time I will persist)
- Participated in my first hashtag discussion: #uklibchat
- And stumbled across my own KnowledgeShare service being discussed by three people I've never met. Which was odd.
Last time I tried I had no one to follow and no one to follow me (apart from my old friend @tomwe who probably doesn't want to hear about knowledge management and commissioning support all that much). Thanks to cpd23 I now know who to follow, and a whole new world has opened up. I discovered the yoono add-on for Firefox, which lets me keep a constantly updated twitter feed at the side of my screen, and suitably kitted-up I expect to be tweeting for quite some time to come.
