As short as blog entries are, on a daily basis there are several other topics or articles that are worth covering or mentioning. Until now, I’ve struggled with how to incorporate them into this blog. After all, as the saying goes, there are only so many hours in the day and lots of work to get accomplished.
I’ve been following for awhile a new tool I’m sure several of you have heard about and that many of you have not, called Twitter. (There’s lots of sites explaining it, including a post here.)
Although there are lots of descriptions about it, more and more professionals are using this as a "micro blogging" tool with posts or ‘tweets’ limited to 140 characters. In essence, it’s a blog with posts that are limited to a sentence.
What can you do in 140 characters? Surprisingly, quite a bit, including providing links to valuable sites and quick updates on interested subjects. And with only 140 characters, you tend to be a bit more direct in the way you communicate.
I plan to use the Connecticut Employment Law Twitter feed to supplement my blog posts here on employment law. Interesting cases, articles and other posts. Think of it as a "blog-extra" — helpful and useful items that you can use. You can check it out at http://twitter.com/ctemplawyer.
As with this blog, it’ll be a work in progress so feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think. Topics you’d like to see or issues you’d like covered. Or better yet, "tweet" me. I’ll be listening.
