Yesterday I put my Twitter stream through Wordle. (Wordle is a way of generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently.)

I’m still not sure how to interpret the results. Either I’m a very happy person or I don’t have anything substantial to say. Or both. Ha.
A lot of people pooh pooh Twitter. “I don’t want to know what someone had for lunch,” they argue. Well, I do. That lunch might be taking place at a great local restaurant, or it might be a fantastic recipe I hadn’t thought of before. And both things are important parts of my work, so yes, I want to know what you had for lunch!
Twitter - as a tool - has definitely been worth bringing into my arsenal. In fact, it’s been especially valuable lately. It’s helped us find a place to live during the renovation and helped me with my work. In fact, it’s been an integral part making connections with people, both on a personal and professional level. The trick is knowing how to use it effectively and not get sucked into the vortex. :)
