Shameless Twitter-related self-promotion

April 11, 2012

Like some other local reporters and/or bloggers (like Ted, Tim, Dan, Phil, Megan, Erika, Justin, Andrew, Patrick, and Bob, to name a few, along with the NYT’s David Carr), I’ve become a big fan of Twitter. TweetDeck takes a little getting used to, but it’s worth it.

The social-messaging service is a great way of staying on the cutting edge of breaking news, getting stuff out there, and learning about myriad subjects, from pensions to the Red Sox.

Like Ted, I often tweet things that don’t necessarily merit fuller blog treatment. My tweets today included observations of how:

— Engage RI and Gina Raimondo’s office offered the same messaging on municipal pension reform yesterday.

— President Obama’s RI team is car-pooling to talk with NH voters tomorrow.

— Why Mitt Romney’s traveling today to the blue bastion of RI.

If you’d like to take a look at my Twitter feed — and maybe considering following me — you can do so here.

    You’ve obviously been hanging around with Crowley too much.

    “Engage RI and Gina Raimondo’s office offered the same messaging on municipal pension reform yesterday.”

    What a coincidence!

    I had a Twitter account for approximately five days. Trying to “tweet” anything of substance, especially when engaging Diane Ravitch in ed reform discussion, in 140 characters or less is useless and speaks to a growing intellectual ADD problem in tis country…

      I’ve never understood why somone didn’t come out with an alternate Twitter-like application that allowed you more than 140 characters. I know there are some Twitter-related services that would allow more than 140 characters per Tweet (with an annoying link that the follower needs to click on to see the entire Tweet), but it always seemed like the 140 character limit was kind of arbitrary.
