Twitter away

For those of you reading this via RSS feed, you won’t have noticed my spiffy new site look.  You’re not missing much in graphic design terms, if I’m honest, but you may have missed that I’ve added a Twitter feed for me in the sidebar.  As instructed by my boss (Patrick), and in fulfilment of one of my objectives from my annual appraisal, I’m trying to Twitter properly for at least a week.  We have this semi-formed idea to try to do some more Web 2.0-style management, and Twitter seems like it could be part of that.  At the very least it means we have slightly more idea about what each other is up to on a daily basis, which is a good thing in and of itself.

(I note sadly that my neologism ‘twittorial‘ has failed to gain traction – rating a grand total of six hits including my original land-grab post and two from a Spanish site.)

  1. Could either you or Patrick explain whay “properly” means in the context of Twitter? 🙂

  2. *laughs* Of course it’s hard to say. Patrick is sitting beside me and says it means “at all”, which seems like an easy bar. Hopefully I’m leaping over it by some way. (I did have a Twitter account but didn’t do any twittering in any sustained and engaged way, but am now. For at least a week!)
