Twitter has its merits. My problem is time. I don't have enough of it for reasons not interesting to The Nation. Not only do I not know how to use all of the mechanics, I don't get to just flat-out read all the Tweets regularly enough to learn the individual languages of some of the major Twits. I'm not much of a Twit -- I alert new articles here, and once in a awhile I'll throw up a non-promotional Tweet. But if I think of something interesting, I like to save it for y'all on MTC.
I follow all of the Ticket guys whose addresses I've been able to get. I have a few more I need to add. I follow some other local sportsy/newsy guys.
Our title today announces my inquiry. When I ask you to tell me who overTweets, I have a couple of qualifications in mind:
(1) If there's a guy who absolutely hijacks your page with endless Tweeting, but whose Tweets are of high quality, funny, interesting -- perhaps he is not an overTweeter, but just a guy with a lot of good stuff on his mind. He gives you quality along with quantity. Work t'other way around -- maybe a guy only slings a half[-dozen Tweets a day, but even with their brevity they waste your time.
(2) We should probably not count big-game Tweeting, where followers actually "tune in" to hear their favorite guy comment on the game as it goes along.
Maybe we should put it in the negative -- who would you like to see Tweet less?
Your nominees need not be limited to Ticket personnel.
