The Twitter dashboard tells me I have 120 followers. That somewhat surprises me, as I have never really promoted my Twitter account and I keep my postings very sparse.
The overwhelming majority of my tweets are automatic notifications when I post a new blog entry. So if you don’t want to wait for the daily summary of The Webinar Blog in your feed reader and feel a need to instantly see my blog updates (where I do the majority of my communicating), Twitter is a convenient way to get a link to the latest content.
Every so often I see a blog posting by someone else or a brief news story that wouldn’t benefit from additional personal analysis or commentary on my blog. It’s just good stuff of interest to people who give webinars. In those cases I’ll shoot a link on my Twitter account so you can read it for yourself.
I just posted two such links:
- WebEx has started a service to retweet announcements of web events that use WebEx. I think that’s brilliant. Access to a much larger follower list for event producers and evidence of real-world utility of their platform for WebEx. More web conferencing vendors should offer this service to their customers.

- George Page at AccuConference summarized a clever acronym (ICEPAC) that can help you organize the construction of a business presentation. It’s not his creation, but he explains it succinctly and clearly. Details at http://tinyurl.com/37w3uuc
If you want to follow me on Twitter, the account name is @KLMonline. I promise you one thing… The tweets may not be frequent, but they will always be specific to webinar news, views, and information. No updates on my location, no updates on how I’m feeling, no updates on what I had for dinner.
