Great Finds on Twitter

While I enjoy sharing the best of my stream, I’m finding so much value on weekends I’m afraid I’d clutter up your stream with RTs.  So, this may be the first of a weekly post highlighting my favorite links. There’s probably a better way to deliver this, but I like to give credit to those who find these nuggets.

Here goes:

It’s no wonder that losses and layoffs are the order of the day in old media.  Simply opening my Twitter stream to fellow knowledge-seekers opens the entire media landscape to me without purchasing a newspaper.  As much as I love sitting outside on a sunny day reading interesting content, the ability to filter one’s info-seeking process through Twitter(and for me, StockTwits) is simply unbeatable.

The bloggers and journalists deserve the first line of credit, but without others out there sharing their thoughts with me I’d never find much of this.  Eventually, you’ll just follow all of these great “finders”, but for now I hope you enjoy my filter.  Thanks technology, thanks wireless, thanks Twitter, and thanks blogosphere!
