Twitter and Technical Writing

My Twitter account has never really gotten off the ground. For that, I blame myself.

Twitter is one of the greatest technical writing tools there is. I misuse Twitter and I don't use it the way a technical writer should use it--which is, to communicate well in a concise manner. Right now, I just blast out links. That's not helping. So, I've disabled that feature.

What I hope to do is integrate Twitter with a technical writing mindset and only "tweet" when I have something useful to say. Perhaps that will energize the thing. Who knows?
