Megite has an interesting round-up of key feeds which I often visit.

Click here to visit Twitter.com In today’s list when I visited it a few minutes ago was a link to an interesting article on Web Worker Daily about Twitter and eight positive uses to which it can be put.

Included in the list:

  • Create an ad hoc back channel at conferences. Though Twitter’s not ideal for this lacking as it is in temporary groups or any group at all, I’ve seen it used effectively to bring together conference attendees and conference “watchers”-people who aren’t at the conference but would like to know what’s going on.
  • Learn important news. I’m much less dependent on my newsreader now because I hear about cool stuff all day via Twitter. For example: I didn’t know that Starbucks was giving away free coffee today until I read it on Twitter.

Enjoy.
