My friend Derrek Cooper has exposed me to more than a few of the latest greatest tech tools in this modern, web 2.0 world. I became a huge believer in Skype and have moved quite a bit of my world into the clouds.
I drew the line at Twitter, though. Firstly, because the name sounds distinctly unmanly. Secondly, because I thought it was just a bunch of kids IMing the fact that they just ate a sandwich or lost a favorite XBOX game.
After enough high praise from Derrek, I gave it a try. The jury is still out for me, but I like what I see initially. Twitter is a great way to get plugged into like minded industry folks to whom you’d otherwise not have much access.
If you like CAD & CAE, Josh Mings does a much better job of explaining the benefits here: 90+ SolidWorks and 3D CAD Users to Follow on Twitter
