This has been getting laughs around the office for a couple weeks now. Conan has a new segment called “Twitter Tracker” where they read the sweet tweets of celebrities on air. It highlights how ridiculous Twitter is but more than anything, the over-hype and general misunderstanding of why tools like Twitter are useful. Much like a blog, it’s not that you blog, it’s relating it back to yourself and what you do and making it relevant to others. No-one cares that Miley Cirus has to wait forever for her latte. Put some quality content up and people will be more inclined to subscribe to your feed and check back often for updates.
Off the soapbox. Check out Conan’s Twitter Tracker. The videos at the bottom of the page are excellent too.
