Firstly, thanks to several of my friends who suggested that I get onboard with Twitter. It’s been a couple of weeks that I got started and the learning’s been phenomenal.
At first the idea seemed absurd. Why would I subject myself to updating twitter and submitting my status every day?! Or bother to read others’ statuses. Now after 2 weeks, I wonder how much I’ve missed by staying off twitter.
So my good friend Marwa pointed me to TweetDeck, which is how I got onboarded. I started off by following a couple of colleagues, then I discovered the search function where you can look for the #tags! Immediately I had #sharepoint, #sp2010, and #sp2007 as search tags and god flooded with loads of articles and news. People put up links and just tweet away, sharing stuff they’re looking at and reading, and overall sharing their posts and replying to each other.
I’d heartily recommend all of you SharePoint folks to get on board! Follow me, #kailashkatwork. Follow #egysug and add #sharepoint and the other tags into your search!
