I don't do twitter. Too much info I don't need.

Those that distill the twitter trends are a lot more interesting.

For once, I agree with Hydra. I only look at one guy's twitter feed, when I go to his website, and he doesn't post that much. Why waste your time "micro-blogging" when you have a popular blog already? I guess it's the fad these days so everybody feels they need to "market" on there, but you know the last site that fit that description? Myspace. :)

It me a long time to figure out Twitter, but now I use it daily for three reasons:

1. To drive traffic to my blog. Most CD blog posts are sent out as tweets on Twitter. Daily visits to CD have gone up significantly in recent months, reaching all-time record monthly highs since I started using Twitter about 6 months ago.

2. To post quick links to Twitter instead of having to write a blog post first.

3. To find up-to-date information, links, news, stories, data, etc. that often result in an idea and data for a blog post on CD. Spending a few minutes on Twitter to find news and ideas for blog posts is much more efficient than going to a number of different individual websites or blogs.

Blogs and Twitter are natural complements, and as a blogger, I have found Twitter to be immensely helpful and beneficial.

That's what RSS feeds are for, and the software is usually free.

I have a Twitter account that I seldom use. I have found occasional ideas for posts for my own website, but not enough to make it worthwhile on a time-cost/performance basis.

And from experience, I can say that any benefits received from Twitter certainly take more than "a few minutes".
