Quality Versus Quantity in Twitter Shares

Snowed Under I’ve been looking at my Twitter feed lately and have noticed that it is becoming rather crowded. There is a heck of a lot of “noise” on my stream.

With all the links that I share on a daily basis, coupled with content from my Google Reader share and our humor site Daily Shite, I can see why some of my followers would be starting to feel a little overwhelmed with the sheer volume of links that go through my stream

That’s not even mentioning my ordinary day to day tweets with all you fine people.

With that in mind I’ve decided to experiment for a bit and stop automatically feeding my GReader share into my twitter stream and be a bit more picky about what I share. (Btw, if you want to get everything I share on Google Reader you can always subscribe to my shares directly).

What it means for my dear twitter followers is that instead of being flooded with 100+ shares a day you should now be down to between 6 and 20 shares a day which have been more carefully considered. Less quantity but more quality if you will.

I’ll still be putting the Daily Shite feed through my twitter stream, it’s only 6 posts a day after all, but over all, share activity will drop dramatically on my feed in favor of quality.

The signal to noise ratio is going to considerably improve.

You may finally be able to see my own tweets in amongst all the other content 😉

This is where I turn to you guys. Do you prefer I send all my shares out, or do you think things will be better with more considered sharing?
