In the last two days, it seems like mass media has “discovered” the magic of Twitter. I just finished reading a New York Times article that declared Second Life dead, but praised Twitter. Interesting.
I’m a fan of Twitter, and we use it heavily here on Podiobooks.com. With every new book launched and every new episode added to a current title, we post a tweet. While you can keep your eye on our blog (or subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed) to keep updated when new books come out, it won’t tell you that we’ve added new episodes to existing in-progress books. You have to follow the home page for that. Or — now — you can keep up with us on Twitter and get it all.
Final thought: I’m not sure that keeping up with Podiobooks.com is the best reason to get involved with Twitter. Sure, it’s free and a snap to use, but it doesn’t fit in with everyone’s workflow. I’ve made it a big part of my daily digital routine (follow me here) and so have countless others. So give it a shot and see how you like it. Welcome to the ever changing world.
