Twitter and Me

The two Davids, among others, have been encouraging me to join the Twitter community and I have done so, with some trepidation, under the user name @mblumenthal.

Who do you follow in the Local space and why? What kinds of information do you find most valuable?

Please consider leaving a comment as your input will help me (& everyone else) better understand and learn about local.

  1. Yes, my professional recommendation would be…..

    Close, very very very close. Pretty damn sick, IMHO. Possibly dangerous.

  2. Mike, don’t fall into the silly trap of trying to get thousands of followers, or following thousands.

    Just follow your peers in Local.

    You will soon find you don’t rely on your RSS feeds for new links. You’ll get it, and much more from twitter.

    Every once in a while take a few days away from twitter too. It can suck a lot of time. Usefull time as its such a great tool for content discovery, but you can’t get any work done when you spend all day reading interesting new blog posts and articles shared on twitter.

    Sounds like good advice.

    My goal has always been to be a content generator not necessarily a consumer…why I am not sure but its the role I prefer….
