@Astrid.

I reckon I’ve spent around 3 hours total on Twitter over a couple of weeks.

This has included learning how it works, installing tweetdeck – a great twitter management tool, and checking people out, reading posts, making comments, etc.

It really doesn’t take that long.

The secret to make it productive (for me) is to weed out the incessant twitterers who rabbit on about nothing of interest to me. I can scan through the material quickly, and build up a mental profile of those who give value, and those whose posts are mainly static.

With Tweetdeck (google it) you can set up groups, and assign people to them. This helps to focus on the purpose for which you want to use twitter at the time.

cheers,
Eric G.
