My first 1000 tweets, in the #twitter universe

Twitter tells me this is my 1000th tweet! That is not much of an accomplishment in itself. The average teenager on Twitter can do the job in just a few days. It also tells me I joined on april 21st 2009.  Not much of a Tweet average either.

This is how I enjoy twitter (so far):

  • A message at a time, about every (working) day. It’s mostly a ‘thought of today’.
  • I am not big in retweeting, but when see a message I like, I will do just that. I do use direct messages, when replying to mentions.
  • When I write an (English) blog, I will promote that using twitter (just shameless self promotion, I know)
  • At times, I send my location out with my tweet. I believe you cannot call yourself a (superneo?)geographer and not do that.
  • Sometimes, I combine Foursquare, Facebook and Twitter, but I basically treat these as separate groups of connections.
  • I don’t look at who follows me (well, sometimes I do).
  • Impact? did measure my Tweet impact once, which turned out the be a ‘nice to know’ only. Now I use – keeps me modest. Does one need to measure impact?
  • I save my Tweets by using a rssfeed in email inbox.

Why I like twitter? It is easy to follow others, who openly share their thoughts to the world. And easy to wonder off into serendipity, when I have the time. My Twitter rulez are still intact, but they have changed a bit over time (I do follow a few colleagues now, and add in personal remarks every now and then).

Looking forward to the next 1000 tweets! (at least I am…)
