Twitter Status

Tony Karrer

My twitter status just changed. Along the way, she convinced me that Twitter was something that I should stop resisting. She did this by sending a tweet out that asked how Twitter helped people with their personal learning. The world is my network with Twitter! RobynDennis @dswaters Twitter allows us (no matter where we are in the world) to receive *instant* updates on the latest news or topics. Not sure how I'll think about using LinkedIn Questions vs. Twitter, but it's still good stuff. See her page: mlearn2007 by others and mlearn2007 my notes.

We now use Facebook more for announcements and things like that. I use twitter to announce things (posts, news and share interesting articles that I find). Following others in twitter becomes more and more a problem if you follow too many.

Tony Karrer

Richard Hoeg points out that for his blog Twitter = High Visits But Low Conversion. Basically, he shows his "referring sites" from Google Analytics for the past two weeks: His conclusion: Folks who visit from Twitter don't visit as many pages and spend less time of the site. Of course, that made me wonder if twitter really was bringing lower quality clicks than other sources.

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, RSS allows us to aggregate feeds from our favourite sources, without the need to visit each and every site every day. Thus far I’ve been using NewsGator as my RSS reader, which I think is an excellent tool. However, I’ve finally cottoned on to the fact that Twitter can also be used as an RSS reader.

Twitter vs blogging

Learning with e's

This time it's whether Twitter is killing blogging. You stand around for ages and then suddenly two big debates come along at once. I was only on the periphery of the Twitter vs blogging debate when I chaired a F-ALT (Fringe ALT-C) session late at night over at the Contact Theatre in Manchester last week.

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. It lets you establish casual connections with no expectation that a follow means someone will follow you back (which is one of the strengths of Twitter). DE: People posting the same thing to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+. find cryptic Twitter-speak annoying enough on Twitter – I certainly don’t want to see it on Google+.
