Follow blog on twitter

| January 29, 2009

Despite my interests in Web 2.0 and Pathology 2.0 as I have referred to, I have not used many of the deliverables of several social media sites and networking tools beyond blogging. 

Still not on Facebook or MySpace but started following several folks on Twitter, which has been called the "telegraph system of Web 2.0."  Some might actually make the case that Web 2.0 is telegraph-type like technology.

Until I actually appreciated how Twitter can be used to maximize the signal to noise ratio, I thought its utility was limited, but there appear to be many deliverables I did not fully appreciate.

"If you aren't familiar with Twitter, it is one of those things, like MySpace, that sounds totally ridiculous and stupid when you first hear about it. But once you start using it, you realize how much fun it is."  Eric Nuzum, Author of The Dead Travel Fast

So far, I agree and now you can follow me (the blog) on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tissuepathology

In order to do this I modified some RSS feeds which should not be disruptive to other readers and applications but please let me know if your feed does get dropped.

  1. I would echo Nuzum’s sentiment, but for Facebook. I was resistant to it, but now log into Facebook several times a week. The limiting factor on all of these Web 2.0 networks is that most precious of commodities: time! It’s hard to find time to do all this social networking when you have a full time job, a family, a dog, etc., etc. Nevertheless, I am soon going to connect my blog to Twitter as you did.

  2. Romance is seeking perfection, love is forgiving faults!

    i like to read your posts. thanks for this one.

  4. I love that you called Twitter a telegraph. I like that Twitter allows us to send out messages to whoever is listening. Pretty much the same as the Morse code.

  5. I was discussing this article with my friends. The author’s take is totally the freshest on this topic. I understand the politics and the passion of the article and believe I would agree with the author. Everyone should contend clarity will bring answers and this forum has done an excellent job explaining the argument. See further info
