Twitter trend- #twangthursday

Add to the Twitter hashtag trends of  #followfriday and #musicmonday one that I can really get behind – #twangthursday.

#twangthursday follows these earlier trends of assigning each day of the week a adjective that makes it easy for other twitter users to find and add to a specific discussion. From what I can gather about the newly christened #twangthursday it’s about country, Americana and roots music.

I, like most people, didn’t initially see the value of Twitter. But like a newsreader that initially has nothing in it Twitter only as good as the streams of content you fill it with. If you are a fan of Mexican food cooking and you follow other fans, chefs and magazines that cater to that then what you have is a valuable and constantly updated resource. If all you follow is your friends, well, I hope you have very interesting friends.

So get out there people and let your #twangthursday fly!!

    I always wondered what the big difference is between twitter and a blog? I just think it is how it is marketed. I do use it for our website because of it’s growing popularity. I agree with you that it depends on what you centent is loaded, but thats like everything on the web.

    @Megan- Just because this post if about twitter doesn’t mean that a twitter -like post is in order, but cool.. I’ll check them out.

    @John – Yeah it seems sort of self-evident. But working in the web industry so long sometimes the new tools come along and I’m skeptical. I’m not on-board just becuase the cool kids are using it. if I can’t use it to inform myself or inform others within a community I find value in then I have better use for my time. I guess it dawned on me how it augments what I do here in a “ah-ha!” sort of way and I thought i’d share. Oh and let people know the Twang Nation is on twitter!
