My most re-tweeted
Yesterday evening was inspirational. I solved a problem that was posed to the twitterati at large earlier in the day, a solution that I thought might be useful to the general Twitter community, and which had certainly challenged my own technical limits.
I awoke to a whole bunch of re-tweets (ten in total, which is about 400% more than my previous record, I reckon) which made me giddy. Giddier even than I had been the previous evening at my relative technical prowess at having solved the problem, which is saying something.
Twitter is lovely. It gives a sense of community which your life doesn’t necessarily afford; and it allows you to share ideas and innovation with people of a relatively like mind, and for them to spread the word.
The tool I created? A way of creating a Google Reader feed from your password-protected Twitter feed—using Yahoo! Pipes. Probably beneath most of my audience; but an immense source of pleasure for me.
