Twitter: How do you tweet yours?

Twitter, the micro-blogging site to rule them all, has introduced me to more relevant contacts more quickly than any other web 2.0 tool. Or other human being for that matter.

Today over a late lunch I put another face to an @name by meeting one (actually, two) of my followers for coffee: Paul Carruthers, who tweets as both @paulcarruthers and @talkwiki.

This was good for three reasons.

Tweet from Paul to Neil

…It’s great to meet nice, like-minded people and web technologies are making it easier than ever to do so. In fact, as I said to Paul today, web 2.0 tools have changed the fabric of society profoundly and irreversibly by eliminating the random factor in the formation of human relationships. (This may have been the latte talking).

It’s all about human beings, after all. We’ve always been connecting with each other, new technologies just make it quicker and – if you ask me – altogether much more reliable.

I can vouch for Paul too! He ‘saw’ web 2.0 before I did. But I cannot vouch for his colleagues …. we blog about society stuff, drunks, footie, foxes, Bono and why the banking sector is just dumb!

Yep, I can confirm that Paul thinks Neil is nice!

Was really good to meet you, Neil and get the chance to explain a little about TALK and where we see it going. Chatting through this stuff with like minded people really helps and social tools are making it easier to build these connections.

I’ll definitely be keeping the TwitterLeague up to date – I’ll add people as I get to hear about them, but drop me an email if you know of someone not on there. As I mentioned maybe I’ll add to it so we can see the weekly ups and downs. Don’t hold your breath on that on though.

[...] Neil Williams has a nice post about the way he has built up his network using Twitter: Twitter, the micro-blogging site to rule them all, has introduced me to more relevant contacts more quickly than any other web 2.0 tool. Or other human being for that matter. [...]

I love the “put another face to an @name” quote, twitter really has come far havent they? They’re a regular part of our vocabulary.
