First there was the breathless blog post from Karon Thackston (Marketing Words Copywriting Blog): “Let’s tweet! I’ve set up a Twitter account and have already been having tons of fun. You can follow me at @karonthackston. Pop over and say, ‘Hi!'” …Then an old classmate, Steve, from my University of Puget Sound days, told me I should get on it – and he’d follow me if I started tweeting.
But today, I read this post – from a blog I find very useful, SEOptimise: “Lately more and more people follow me who I have never heard of before. As I follow roughly 400 people myself I can’t follow everybody ‘back’ in order not to lose track of my many virtual Twitter friends. There already is some serious information overload bugging me.”
Uh, that scares me a little. Just thought I’d pass along “the dark side” of Twittering, even though I am still firmly committed to getting out there and playing in traffic. Plus, I promised Steve I’d do it!
