Little did I realize that my ranting about powerpoint templates yesterday would end up on Mashable today in a post called Twitter Professors: 18 People To Follow for A Real Time Education by Lon S. Cohen.
Recently, I've been asked by some folks about how they can get more followers quickly. One of the tips I've passed along is something I try practice everyday. Be helpful, share what you know freely, and don't just promote your own work.
A few months ago I had the pleasure having dinner with Kevin Gamble, Beth Rainey, and Ann from Extension. I met them two years ago when I did a webinar called "Ten Steps To Extension 2.0" Kevin and I started to share RSS reader tips and habits and he pointed to Feedly an RSS reader that gives you a magazine layout and makes it easy to share links from your reader. (See this review from Mashable).
It makes it easy to post to Twitter or bookmark finds from over the 1000 blogs that monitor. I figure why hoard the good stuff I find?
What's your routine for sharing information on Twitter?
What tool do you use?
