David on Twitter

Blogging, General, Marketing Oct 28, 2008 12 Comments
I finally gave in and decided to give Twitter a try. I know, I know – dangerous. Like I need one more thing demanding my time and energy online…but I don’t think it’s all a waist.

For those who haven’t heard, Twitter is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time. Sounds incredibly simple, and it is. One of Twitter’s high points, is you can let others know what your up too, without having the internet attached to your hip – nice for those who actually have lives.

Basically, it’s an awesome way to let others know what you’re up to without obtrusively interrupting them via phone, email, etc. If they want to know what your up to, they just “follow” you. Simple.
So, having said all that, if for some reason you would like to know what I’m doing on a somewhat regular basis, click here to follow me and get the inside scoop.

Do you use Twitter? Want me to start following you? Leave a comment and a link to your profile and I’ll add you to my watch list. :)

    Hi David – I haven’t signed up yet as my days are so full already. A lot of my blogger friends are on Twitter, so one day I’ll probably cave in.

    Barbara, I can totally relate with you! I’ve been holding out for quite some time now myself…but recently caved in. So far, I can see why so many people rant and rave about it. You get what you put into it.

    I’ve been actively involved on Twitter now for a few days, and have already received a flood of traffic to my blog as a result. I’m not saying it’s a one size fit all solution for everyone…but it does have it’s advantages.

    Hey David,

    I just followed you back on Twitter. Welcome to the jungle of Twitter! XD
    I myself only joined Twitter a few days back and it’s been pretty wild.

    It’s kinda fun but you gotta be careful not to get addicted to it ;D

    Dude, I’m so with you. I don’t need another site sucking the time right from the tips of my fingers and eyeballs, but so far it has been kinda ‘fun’. Yeah, fun…in that it’s interacting real time with many of my subscribers and such…that aspect is neat.

    Anyway, thanks for following, i’m looking forward to sharing web shit with ya.

    Yeah, watch the addiction…

    Dayummmm you’ve got so many followers on Twitter. How’d you get to that number?

  11. Reply David Lano says:

    @Wayne – Yeah, I totally agree. The think I love about Twitter, is I’m able to meet people, that I otherwise would never meet, in a casual way. I’ve already met some solid people and although I wouldn’t really consider them close friends, I’ve been able to have some great conversations.

    @Zombiegato – Haha, I have no idea. For some odd reason, people follow me. I feel honored. :)
