“You can use Twitter as a way to move from weak ties to strong ties, to get to know people better. Twitter is perfect to establish weak ties (by following them), you can start to engage by interacting (such as replying, retweeting) but may also organize face-to-face meetings. In this way Twitter helps you expland your strong network.” — @joitske

This is how I have used Twitter since I jumped into it. I wrote when I wrote about navigating the knowledge flows:

Go slow for going fast could mean: pause, think critically, reply slowly and later. Participate in stimulating online conversations but also take time to reflect and listen. Sometimes a fast response can be a timely action to what’s needed. So it depends on the context, methinks.

I can also relate to what is written below:

“I try to sift through all the Twitter content from my network and look for trends and relationships between topics. I then put my analysis and interpretation on it. I feel that’s where my value-add is. I’m not just sending out a bunch of links. I think through what might be valuable to particular groups such as marketing or engineering. This leads to engaging discussion.” My personal experience is that there is also serendipity involved. I follow L&D trend watchers and read about artificial intelligence and chatbot. When I participated in a face-to-face method to reflect about mistakes in order to learn from them I was able to connect that idea to a confession bot idea. Hence Twitter does work for me as a source of new ideas. — @joitske

Indeed, serendipity can abound as I shared:

“Be inspired and learn from the learning curve and practices of Jennifer Sertl for your own practices and learning curves.

There are other truly inspirational people who are also curating the curators. Beth Kanter is curating the curators. Joyce Seitzinger is also paying attention to the practices, shares and conversations of the ‘Curation Explorers’.

(…) Just start with values and by curating interests, try, find out. Start with why. Ask yourself what are your intents and how they create value. And let serendipity do its magic! Serendipity abounds.”
