I commented, what do you think?
I get a lot of value every day as a marketer by following influential and industry experts. As a group of users on Twitter we crowd-source and filter interesting information and share that.
It is not perfect but nothing is. Last weeks survey by Pear Analytics suggested that almost 50% of tweets are mindless babble – that means that over half of it isn’t. If only the internet was less than 50% babble. It’ also easy for me to browse this content quickly and choose what I consume.
Twitter isn’t for everyone but then neither is RSS, reading magazines, watching TV etc etc.
As with all online content, the majority of content is produced by a minority, I certainly take more than I produce from Twitter.
But I’m also happy it is a valuable tool and like TV if I follow someone and their content doesn’t appeal or doesn’t interest me I change channel by unfollowing them.
