Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

No more daily Twitter posts

Just as with my daily del.icio.us link posting experiment in the past, I have decided to discontinue my automated daily Twitter summary. I will continue posting to Twitter, and the most recent of my tweets will be displayed in my sidebar here. But think they should remain separate from my main blog content. I just feel like they “clutter” things up here, and the things I post on Twitter are different in scope from what I normally post in my blog.

I will likely continue to post mostly technical observations here in my blog (with the occasional side-track into non-technical areas). More personal, everyday, short thoughts will go to Twitter (with the occasional technical note). I’ve got a couple of WordPress-related posts coalescing in the back of my brain, and I hope to find time to write them up and post them soon. Stay tuned!

    I’m glad you have decided this. Your RSS feed was full of twitter stuff when I opened my NetVibes and I almost unsubscribed from your feed. 🙂 Will keep it now though! Cheers…

    Good call, this is what tumblelogs are for IMO.

  4. Sentp says:

    It has always confused me as to why people republish their twitters on a blog. Isn’t twitter for keeping this stuff in one place?

    BTW, Alex thanks for the heads up with the tumblelogs! Its a really good concept.

    I have also leaved Twitter. It doesn´t make much sense in most of the blogs.

  6. Deep says:

    Thankyou very much, i was thinking of joining twitter,
    but after reading your post i just changed my mind…..
    thanks once again

  7. I have to agree I’m glad you’ve turned it off – made the RSS feed cluttered!

    I prefer to write a small post on my blog…

    like Taviaon said, i also prefer a "little blog" to write simple word in my mind 🙂

    I used to have weekly and monthly twitter recaps for my blog, but I decided to stop doing it because most of the time people would comment on my post and ask why I even do this. I originally just did it to have more posts on my site without actually doing any work, but I think that it just added junk to my site.

    A monthly one might be worth posting, but anything more frequent than that and it isnt worth it.
