Are you on Twitter?

Most of you who read this blog probably get here via Facebook or Twitter these days.  Yes, I am one of those attention whores that has their Twitter setup to post status updates to Facebook when we tweet.  And, I’ve taken that a step further by setting my blog to tweet when I have released a new post.
But, sometimes, I just tweet regular, random stuff, just like every other attention whore on Twitter!  I may not tweet photos of what I’ve eaten for breakfast, but, occasionally, I tweet something that’s intended to be funny or insightful.  So, in any case, I know what it’s like to try and keep those tweets fresh and interesting.  And, I know, it’s not easy!  So, you’ll be relieved to know that there IS help!  Help in the form of the website “Yes, that can be my next tweet!

The web-app will look at your Twitter feed and use programattic magic to analyze patterns to your tweets and mash them together to suggest similar tweets.  Then, of course, you can send them right to your hordes of faithful Twitter followers who are just waiting for your next brilliant tweet about how the stupid traffic made your yummy fast-food breakfast cold!  Or whatever.  No judgement.  (Well, maybe a little.)


  1. yo! You may have noticed I just joined twitter. To be honest I’m havoing trouble liking it so far. Its kind of just like typed vomit on my screen and I’m having trouble caring about a lot of it. Maybe I need to follow less people. I feel my feed is clogged with lots of people I thought would be witty and interesting, and really I’m just like “shut up!” (except you clearly, I clicked on your blog post as soon as I saw it….)

  2. No, I don’t think I had seen that yet on Twitter. I’ll look for you.

    Obviously, I don’t tweet much. I’ve had my own issues embracing the platform. Seems like so much inane chatter most of the time. Also, I read somewhere that you just can’t keep track of more than 200 or so people in any given social group, so I keep the people I follow to that or less. Makes it far easier to really follow them, though, I have to admit, even then, I don’t always follow very closely.
