Twitter is a great tool of information discovery if you learn to do some of the following:
- Follow the right people or topics
- Create lists focused on your topics of interest – one list for each topic
- Find a way to filter out noise (include duplicates)
Most of my reading material comes from following some of the most informed people around me.
I love the way that Twitter points me to interesting stuff and causes me to Google, think about and research things that I might otherwise have not. I read things that resonate with me and I am almost compelled to follow them up.
