I will follow you. Will you follow me?
All the days and nights that we know will be.
I will stay with you. Will you stay with me?
Just one single tear in each passing year there will be.
"Follow You, Follow Me," ...And Then There Were Three..., Genesis, 1978.
My Twitter account is:
To get a perspective on what others in the Twitter community had to say, in June I expanded my list of people I was following. In Twitter terms, "following" someone means that their updates, called Tweets, appear on my Twitter page.
Actually I use a program called TweetDeck, so what I really see is their Tweets in nice columns.
Once I follow someone, in turn many of these people reciprocate by following me. At the start of July my Twitter status looked like:
Twitter only allows me to follow up to 2,000 other people. I also use a service called Twitterfeed to share It's Alive in the Lab blog postings with people who follow me on Twitter. I have found that if I fully follow 2,000 people, Twitterfeed stops working, It's best to keep one's follow list at no more than 1990. So I will be spreading things around. I will unfollow some people to make room to follow others.
On a side note, it was really cool to see our Autodesk Gallery mentioned as one of the top 11 3D companies and artists to follow on Twitter. 11? I guess the author has seen This is Spinal Tap.
Sharing what the deal is with this "Twitter thing" is alive in the lab.
