Though I am certainly probably not doing it right, I am twittering, in that I have a twitter account and a few times a day post a tweet. For the foreseeable future, I will keep this account closed to all but those who request to follow me. (Which I do for facebook as well...I am shy that way.) I currently have a whopping 5 followers, one of which is related to me. I have received several request but/and they tend to be from people I don't know who are interested in making money by having a gazillion twitter followers or are heavy on the sexual innuendos. I am not interested in either of these tactics. I have yet to receive a request I will approve from someone I don't know personally. But I do look forward to the day when someone wants to follow because they are interested in librarianship, or writing, or something like that. So, dear reader, give it a try... You could be the first!
My young friend Nicole (of NMD Photography - see her blog for great photos) showed me how to sign up and how she was using it to connect with other photographers. I don't quite get the whole @someones' name thing. Perhaps someone out there on the interwebs can enlighten me. Or I'll find another young person (a digital native) to show me.
