A Fresh Look at Twitter

I do a lot of networking on Twitter. I manage nearly a dozen profiles for my various websites, apps and services. My main profile is @DotSauce which has just reached a following of 14,000. With this profile I am a curator, a domainer, a developer and a scout for all the most useful links related to social media, WordPress, startups and marketing.

Managing this content is not an easy task, but I have simplified it to a casual part of my daily routine, though I do take some days off. I’ve learned to filter out the noise and tune in to information that is relevant and valuable. The reward for curating all this content is a continually expanding reach. I am able to introduce new people to domain investing and web development all the time.

I don’t want to spoil the good thing I have going with the DotSauce profile. So, I am starting fresh with a personal account on @MarkUnfiltered.

Here are a few ideas and goals I have for getting this fresh Twitter profile in motion.

  • Share my thoughts on music, movies, media, society and the internet
  • Check-ins on location based services
  • Contest entries
  • Links to geeky, techy goodness
  • Promote Electronic / Dubstep music
  • Have some real conversations
  • Connect with locals
  • Follow selected interesting profiles
  • Create new and unique Twitter lists

It should be an interesting journey re-discovering Twitter and sharing some of my alternative interests. I’m definitely looking forward to the possibility of actually reading a good portion of Tweets from a new stream.

You’re welcome to follow along @MarkUnfiltered if any of this sounds interesting to you.

How would you do it the second time around? Send me some advice.

    Twitter’s constantly changing up their site as well, so that users don’t get bored. That’s something to look into as well.
