No Twitter daily thingies for me

So like a bunch of people, I installed the fun Twitter Tools plugin by Alex King. It works as advertised, and I enjoy the fact that it will Tweet when I put a new blog post up.

One of the features of the plugin, which I initially found cool, was that it can also put a “daily digest” of my tweets on my blog. I let that go for a few days, but I couldn’t be sure if it added value or not.

Yesterday, a few people got got in touch with me and made me realize that those digests only make sense to me, as the the context in which they were written is gone. I can’t argue with that, and the last thing I want to do on my blog is decrease the signal-to-noise ratio..

So the daily digests are gone. Will anyone miss the out of context micro insights?

    I’ll miss them. I actually enjoyed reading them every day. Too bad they are gone.

  2. I found them interesting for a few minutes, but honestly think the context thing is important. They are rather disconnected. I enjoy your coherent writing much better, even if it’s only a couple of sentences.

  3. Glad to see they’re gone. Now you can go back to writing about substance. 😉

  4. Hi Bob,

    I’m with you…I’ve stopped the daily digest posts…this will force me, as Charles says, to create some substance…that is assuming there is any substancial I have to say…

    🙂

To me, it’s just another channel in a list of channels I can barely keep up with. My RSS reader is packed with posts days behind, and iTunes currently lists 187 (!) podcasts I have yet to listen to.
