I recognize the incredible value of a handwritten note and I suck at actually sending them. Greg Meyer, from Gist.com, does not.
It’s become routine for me to “tune in” to REBarcamps using Tweetgrid.com/irc. I set up the feed in the morning and let it run all day. I’m trying to look at signal vs noise. Here’s a video that looks at #REBCSTL.
What this app does is generate a “trending topics” list from JUST the people you follow on Twitter. You can sort for words or hashtags by timeframe. If you find a tweet you want to respond to or retweet, you can do that right from that app as well. This is all Friend Trend does. That’s it. And I like it.
How do we increase the signal to noise ratio in conference twitter streams? Is Twitter even the best place to share the content? These are some of the questions I’m left with after monitoring the REBCNASH stream on Twitter.
