Are you feeling overwhelmed by Twitter? I hear comments like this all the time:
I don’t have time for Twitter.
I can’t keep up with Twitter.
I’m too busy for Twitter.
Are you amazed by the amount of updates in your Twitter stream? Did you know you do not have to read ALL of the updates of the people you follow?
Think of Twitter like the break room at a corporate office: when you enter the break room there are probably other people in the room having a conversation –> you walk in to the middle of the conversation –> participate while you are in there –> then go back to work even though there are probably still people carrying on a conversation in the break room after you’ve gone back to work.
Most likely you are not going to get a replay of all the conversations you missed (unless you work with one of those really gossipy types). And probably you are okay with that. So why do you feel the need to read every single tweet that comes through your stream?
Twitter is a lot like the break room – when you are signed in you participate in conversations, when you are gone life goes on without you and it is okay.
Do you agree? Do you read every single update?
