I’ve gotten some requests for how to follow BSMW on Twitter. (Despite the big box to the right here.) Since Twitter is here to stay, (I’ve had my account there since March of 2007) you might want to get familiar with it. It is more than just simply posting inane messages about where you are or what you’re doing. Used properly, it can be a great source of information and a way to be alerted to breaking news. The search feature on Twitter is also extremly powerful. Using http://search.twitter.com/ or the search box on the main Twitter page allows you to see what people are currently saying about almost any topic. The “trending topics” list is often a way that you can see what news is currently breaking, as thousands of people “Tweet” about it.
Here are the BSMW-related Twitter accounts you can follow:
BSMW – @bruceallen
Fang’s Bites – @fangsbites
Patriots Daily – @patriotsdaily
Sports Media News – @sportsmedianews
To follow these accounts sign up a Twitter.com and then add the above account to the end of the Twitter address:
http://www.twitter.com/bruceallen for instance. Then you can click the “Follow” button and you will get the updates I post there.
If you don’t want to sign up for Twitter, you can either keep up with the posts in the box to the right here, or just by going to the http://www.twitter.com/bruceallen address and seeing what I’ve recently posted.
