Dont Waste Your Time

I joined Twitter in January 2008 and in the last 6 years, 4 months, and 7 days since my first tweet I have made or posted nearly 33,000 tweets!

Twitter: Le triple filtre

Learning with e's

I've been discussing the merits of Twitter as a professional social network recently in conversation with colleagues.
