Signal to Noise

hlg_twitter_firedI realized the other day that I really was not using Twitter as mush as i used to…  I realized that following 250+ people just created to much noise & no matter how hard I tried I just could not keep up with the noise.

So, in a last ditch effort to keep my Twitter activity alive I decided it was time to thin the herd.  Reviewing all of the people I was following made me realize i just was not interested in a lot of these people.  I started un-following with abandon & managed to trim things down to a more reasonable 100.

I’m going to make it a point to keep the number I’m following on Twitter to 100.  if I want to add someone, someone has to go…

Anyone else find twitter to be unusable over a certain number of “friends”?

No More Twitter Posts!

twitter_fail_whaleAt least on this blog…  I’ve experimented with using Twitter to supplement the content on the IndyScan blog but have found that it just ends up cluttering things up.  I already have the latest “tweet” on the right hand column and Twitter does come in handy to alert Facebook of Blog updates…  I tried the “weekly” summary of Twitter posts but even that can get a little unruly…  So, for the time being I have removed all Twitter content from the archives and will concentrate on actual blog posts…  If you want to follow me on Twitter, feel free to do so here.
