Twitter is certainly a cool way to keep friends and family abreast on what you are doing. I have used it in the past and have started using it to keep folks up to date on RF Web Studio. I was looking for creative ways to show off my twitter feed. Among the best that I found were the Twitter application for Facebook and the Twitter Badge. There are some more useful Twitter tools at Quickonlinetips.com that Wordpress users may appreciate.
The biggest thing though that I have found is that Google and other search engines index your Twitter Feed. So using relevant key phrases in your Tweets is a good way to get some search engine exposure. Try searching for “Twitter ‘your name’ ” or “Twitter hillary clinton” in your favorite search engine. They are indexed in some way shape of form.
Is Twitter worth the time? I know I don’t wake up and think “hey let me go Tweet”, but I have added the Be Twittered Gadget to my iGoogle Home page, and that makes it pretty easy to add Tweets without interrupting my daily activities and getting too side tracked.
