Quick note about Twitter

We don’t advertise it much, but just in case you aren’t aware, we have a presence on Twitter: @newballpark. All articles are set to auto-tweet once published. Often I’ll retweet articles I find interesting, some of which I’ll write about and some I won’t. I also correspond with the Twitterverse on all subjects sports economics. If you want to be up-to-date, follow us on Twitter.

Now get back to work.

    @dknight007 – Obviously, you don’t understand Twitter and what it can do for you.

    lone stranger,

    Twitter just isn’t for me….don’t have time to wasting on Twitter. I can barely tolerate FB.

    I gave Twitter a shot when it first started, and I don’t need to “follow” people I don’t give a crap about.

    You don’t follow people you don’t give a crap about. You follow things you are interested in. It’s that simple. No one is forcing you to follow anyone.

    I don’t waste hardly any time on actual Twitter. I follow a lot of people, but only a few of them are set to send text messages to my phone. For example, the A’s beat writers. A few A’s players. Townsend/95.7, CSN, CNN Breaking news, my favorite NASCAR driver and his team owner/team twitter. Some friends. Of course, newballpark.

    Then I have a whole slew of people I follow who I only check on every so often when I visit the Twitter site.

    It’s not only for people to waste time with each other talking about whatever is the in thing now; it’s become a very useful tool for receiving timely information, in a manner that doesn’t require me to actively look for it. When it happens, I get it. You may be happy with getting your breaking news when you tune into the radio and wait for the cycle to come around or to go visit a website when it’s convenient to you, but I enjoy having the information sent to me when I’m out and about. It can be a time saver.
