Once Upon a Geek on Twitter

You can now find ONCE UPON A GEEK on Twitter.

Clearly I was brainwashed this week by listening to all those presentations about social networking.  If you asked me a week ago, I would have said I thought Twitter was pointless.  After hearing a presentation on how to use Twitter productively, I’m willing to give it a try.

What helped to finally convince me was the following list.  Here are the Five Stages of Twitter Acceptance:

I was SO living in #1 until a few days ago.  Now I’m going to make my best effort to jump right to #5.  In keeping with the spirit of this list, I’ll do my best to ensure my Twitter posts (a.k.a. tweets) contain useful information or are truly microblogs.  Any tweets I write will not simply be a reproduction of what I post here; it will be new material.

If you are interested, you may “follow” me on Twitter or read my tweets in the right-hand sidebar here on ONCE UPON A GEEK.  I’ve installed a widget that displays my five most recent tweets.

If you already use Twitter, please feel free to drop me a note there.  If not, it may be worth checking out this up-and-coming service.

    Was there a stage for people that signed up for it a long time ago when it was lame, and who are now bitter that everyone thinks it’s the shit?
