For those of us who have discovered that sharing random slices of life with the world is mildly addicting, Ed Stetzer has some excellent advice. That's right, Twitter has become widespread enough to have its own tutorials. But I'm not complaining. Here's a good call from Stetzer:
1. "Tweet" the angles (Twitter is the service, "tweet" refers to the update/post).
It's not worth tweeting that you had lunch. But the fact that your boss stole fries off your plate while he thought you weren't looking is. Avoid the obvious and find the angle of an experience. People want you to share your life, so give them the good stuff.
Totally true. If I wanted to know unadorned facts like 1) you're eating lunch now, 2) you're leaving work now, 3) you're going to bed now, etc., I'd also paint my bathroom a couple times a week and watch the paint dry, just for fun. But with a little forethought, Twitter can be a good networking tool.
