140 characters to make you think…

140 characters to make you think…

By Rajesh Setty on Sun 22 Feb 2009, 11:03 PM – 4 Comments

I am 75 days old on Twitter. I have a long way to go there but I know that I have to start somewhere.

So, here is what I am doing on Twitter in the next two three weeks (starting Feb 23, 2009 to March 13, 2009):

Everyday from Monday to Friday I will have five tweets from 6.30am to 10.30am PST under the ThinkTweet category. There will be a ThinkTweet at 6.30am, 7.30am, 8.30am, 9.30am and 10.30am PST. My goal is to make every one of these tweets count – meaning make you think.

I am VERY confident of keeping this promise about the schedule. Why? (wink) because I have already scheduled most ALL MOST of these Tweets using HootSuite. I wrote them over the last few weeks in preparation for these two weeks.

I know, I know – Twitter is all about conversations. However, I think Twitter can be used for something more. To enrich and enlighten. 140 characters is a lot to make someone think. These 50 tweets will be my humble attempt to prove that.

Come and join me on Twitter on this journey. You don’t have to be on Twitter to follow these tweets. There is an RSS feed option on my Twitter home page and you can subscribe using any RSS reader. If you are my friend on Facebook, you will see these Tweets as status updates on my Facebook profile.

My Twitter Id is @UpbeatNow.

Have a great week ahead!

That’s a great idea, Rajesh! I just followed you on twitter and am looking forward to the upcoming messages. It is indeed amazing how a short sentence / question / statement can get the mind racing. Though: only 140 letters, not words ;-)

Thank you for your kind comments and also thank you for the correction. I updated the post – changed “words” to “characters.” :)

An OT comment, Rajesh. Just wanted to make you aware that you have a small typo in the “Meet with me” block on the first page of your blog. “shedule” instead of “schedule”.

I enjoy your blog btw.
