Filtering Twitter's Noise with Mixero As many of us know, the usefulness of Twitter lies in the user's ability to find, refine, and engage with a network. Most of the invalid complaints about the service revolve around signal-to-noise ratios; of course you, Naysayer #583, don't want to know what I ate for breakfast. Neither does anyone else.

The top 7 mistakes new Twitter users make :: 10,000 Words :: mul The top 7 mistakes new Twitter users make :: 10,000 Words :: mul Not completing a bio The cardinal sin of most new Twitter users is not filling out the small but important section that says a bit about who they are. It could be a simple as a name (or a clever alias for the secret agents or painfully shy) or even just a sentence or two.

Life On The Twitter Suggested User List Life On The Twitter Suggested User List By Brandon Mendelson (@BJMendelson), Event Organizer for A Million High Fives (a quest to high five one million Twitter followers and volunteer with them at their local homeless shelter this August.) For the moment, I am one of the most followed non-celebrity / musician, non-media, non-brand, people on Twitter.

Twitterville Falls For Premium Accounts Hoax Twitterville Falls For Premium Accounts Hoax It’s mildly funny and very obviously a hoax, but this article on humour site BBspot didn’t stop many a Twitter user from thinking it is real. The author of the post mocks Twitter’s lack of an apparent business model after 3 years in operation, and writes that the startup’s CEO Evan Williams today finally announced plans to introduce a paid premium account scheme.
