Twitter: Ja oder Nein?

Gleich 2 Beiträge der letzten Tage beschäftigen sich mit dem Für und Wider von Twitter:

Christian Spannagel veröffentlicht seinen überaus interessanten Mailaustausch mit Ulli Kortenkamp, in dem beide über den persönlichen Nutzen (Spannagel) und seine Gründe für das Ende des Twitterns (Kortenkamp) diskutieren. Das muß man einfach lesen, und sollte sich auch die Kommentare nicht entgehen lassen. Charmant: Christian Spannagel läßt abstimmen, ob Ulli Kortenkamp twittern soll oder nicht.

Auf TwiTip widmet sich Jamie Harrop der These: Twitter is as Bad (Or as Good) as YOU Make It.
Amüsant und treffend sein einführender Dialog:
Sausage and Eggs for Breakfast
The conversation usually goes like this:
John Doe - “I hate Twitter”
Jamie - “Why?”
John Doe - “I don’t want to know what somebody ate for breakfast!”
Jamie - “If you used Twitter, you would know it’s nothing like that”
John Doe - “I have used Twitter, and it’s exactly like that”
Jamie - “Maybe that’s because you’re not using Twitter in the best way?"
Im folgenden zeigt er 5 Wege auf, den Twitter-Followern Nutzen zu bringen - unter der Prämisse:
If you want Twitter to give you value, try giving some value first.
Retweet Messages
A retweet instantly builds a relationship. It shows the person you’re retweeting that you enjoy what they just wrote and you want to engage in conversation.
Build friendships by Replying
You wake up in the morning and reach the office, open up Twhirl or Tweetdeck, write a couple of Tweets, minimise the program to the task bar, open the program again at lunch and write a few more Tweets, then minimise it again....It’s the people who take time to keep Twhirl or Tweetdeck open, and take the time to read their followers Tweets, and take the time to reply to those Tweets, that truly make the biggest impact on Twitter.
Treat Twitter Like a Party, Not a Show and Tell
Don’t expect quick results from Twitter. You must build solid, honest relationships first.
Introduce New People
Twitter is a game of emotions and relationships. ...You’re making people feel special, while letting them know how much you appreciate their Tweets. Win win!
Start a Conversation and Share the Results
In the same way that bringing interactivity to your blog and letting your audience generate the content is a fantastic way to build relationships, using polls and starting questions for debate on Twitter are excellent methods to engage your audience and promote interaction within your circle of followers.
