Do you Tweet? 17 Comments

I like to organize my time to the point of oblivion; I have various projects in my hands at all times.

For bernos alone, I might have to write out an email to our e-newsletter subscribers, update some web advertisements among many other small menial tasks of running a really small business.

For the day job, it’s a whole list of tasks that you guys are probably familiar with — like reading your emails and responding to some.

I am always late to jump on new technology, especially those related to social aspects. I think email is the best thing since sliced bread; up to the point that I prefer not to date someone that is not apt to communicating via email.

One of the tools we love here at bernos is Facebook, although I have been somewhat critical of it. A friend was supposed to send me some details and she opted to send it via Facebook mail. Needless to say, I was very annoyed. Email it!

I use various task lists, Gmail calendar, work calendar, Gmail Tasklist, Tada list and for my work my beloved Moleskin Legendary Notepad (seen on the image above, that is my hand). I use it to draw mock-ups for my designs as well as organizing my thoughts on how I am going to approach my design projects and front end coding.

On my task list, for months (since Dec 08 actually) has been researching how bernos is going to utilize Twitter. I have a very simple understanding of how Twitter works. And I signed up as myself after getting a lot of invites from various sources.

Now I just completed signing up we are going tweeting. Already following Chachi Taddesse!

On my task list this week is to learn as much as I can about tweeting — mainly how to tweet via phone and then connect the tweet to be the same as our bernos fans page status.

Once this whole thing gets connected we will be connected in real-time from with bernosiawians, or should I say Twitterers?

Update: Twitter officially is having some major problems… the account i signed up for – actually two of them are not working. What a waste of 1.5 hours I spent trying to figure it out. I am pissed. Its things like this that discourage some of the things I try to do.

    ok so i tweet… but i found it to be a waste of time to keep up with everyone’s updates.. i don’t care if so and so is eating a sandwich or stuck in traffic.. however, it’s a very efficient marketing tool for small businesses and creative artists, activists, that way i found really cool websites when pple asked me to follow them.

    the other creepy part is ur sending updates for people u hardly met. So, i ask what’s the relevance?

    btw i read in one the habesha blogs that Meles Zenawi is using tweeter “to connect with fellow ethiopians abroad”..uhhhhmm

    Good that you are on Twitter. I prefer Twitter to facebook. The fact that facebook is creating more social chaos (e.g. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1904147,00.html) while you rarely here such issues on Twitter could be one excuse.

    One reason for this, I think, is because Twitter is more of a public post, or a micro-blogging service as they call it, so people tend to use it as such and be cautious on what they say. One can use Twitter
    - as a social bookmarking tool
    - for promoting a brand (Zappos is famous for this)
    - for following ‘Trending topics’ with a # tag, e.g. #Ethiopia
    - for getting updates from a guru in your field be it science or journalism…etc
    - Charity e.g. http://www.charitywater.org/twestival/
    - sending out a broadcast with a question and anybody who searches for a specific text in your request can reply you with @your_twitter_handle and you will get the reply by clicking your @replies link on the right hand side of your Twitter page. The responder doesn’t necessarily need to be following you and vice versa.
    - and on and on…

    In addition, Twitter is being considered as a real-time search service. Recently, I wanted to watch a video of Usain bolts’ world record, and neither Google nor YouTube could provide me with a link, but search.twitter.com presented me with one as the first result.

    I guess the above says a lot why I am on facebook and not on Twitter.

    Will say more as I learn more about Twitter.

    Happy Tweeting
