The CTL is starting to twitter! We have set up CTLEvents to send reminders of events and send up-to-minute changes that might occur. I know that I am going to value this new service by the CTL — a little nudge will be helpful for this old, absent-minded professor.
To sign up for twitter and follow “CTLEvents” go here: http://twitter.com/CTLEvents and click on the Join Today button. It is simple.
The key to making twitter interesting and ultimately productive is to get a desktop application that you like. Lots of them here: http://twitter.com/downloads. I’ve tried TweetDeck and Thwirl and Twitterific and Snitter for my laptop. I am using TweetDeck mostly these days, but that may because I follow lots of people and with tweetdeck I can group folks.
I’ve used Hahlo for my iPod Touch and currently I am using Tweetie. These work on the iPod Touch and the iPhone!
You might ask yourself why twitter. Here are a couple interesting articles on the topic.
If you all are twittering yourselves, feel free to follow me: http://twitter.com/profdebock
Hope you are having a great weekend and I’ll see you on the web!
