Twitterification

I must admit I’ve never really jumped on the twitter bandwagon. I set up an account, “macsparky”, and logged in a few times but most of the stuff I do during the day is for clients and confidential and I don’t think anyone really cares whether I ate grape nuts or granola for breakfast so I’ve never really got it.

Since I’m going to be in Macworld next week I’m thinking now is the time to get a bit more serious about Twitter since folks seem to use it to communicate a lot in those big halls. After doing a bit of interweb research I’ve installed Twitterific on my Mac and set up hahlo.com on my iPhone.

I have also managed to track down several of my friends and favorite Mac gurus and added them to my Twitter feed. I even found a specific feed set up by the Macworld folks .. or perhaps someone pretending the to be the Macworld folks.

Now that I’m more or less set up I’d like to solicit advice as to how in the heck to use this technology. Drop me an email or post a comment if you are a Twitter expert.

    I am in exactly your situation. I did recently add TUAW twitter account to see the Macworld posts. I am still just checking the app out but have little understanding or appreciation of it.

    I think if all my best friends were on and we could all communicate with each other all day with this, it would be fabulous. But none of my friends would EVEN consider doing such a thing. I am the one geek among them; and my geek credentials are limited.

    Anyway, I looked you up and saw a red lock next to you. I do not even know what that means. I had no idea you could shut yourself up on Twitter; I thought the idea was to broadcast yourself?

    So, I am not much help.

    Just clicked on my settings and found out I, too, am locked away on Twitter. My geek credentials are impressive, huh?
