Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Twitter and Google Reader Aren't at War

« What is Your Purpose for Blogging? | Main | Growing and Monetizing News Media »


Could not agree more. One certainly does not replace the other. bloggers should be sensitive to the fact that many of their readers are going to depend on twitter for updates, but besides that, there is certainly power in both tools. I cannot personally imagine using Twitter to replace my rss reader.

@Cindy - delicious is good, I agree. I just never developed a strategy for integrating it in my activities, so I use it occasionally. To save a Twitter search go to Google Reader browse for stuff, select the "search" tab and "keyword and searches". Enter your search term and select "twitter search" on the menu provided, then hit + subscription.

@Laurens - thank you for stopping by.

@Sommer - as I'm sure you agree, staying up to date and current depends on the content you syndicate. In some cases, it's mostly on opinion, in others, it's more information, knowledge and news.

@Carolyn Ann - I count on you and many others to challenge my take and am very grateful for it. Although I tend to look at many sides of an issue myself, I'm keenly aware that I am both writer and editor. Good observations on the numbers - they merely depict my sharing and reading habits. I do seem to process a lot of information! While data is interesting, it's what you do with it and how you interpret it that makes it valuable ;)
