....until two things happened:
1. I acquired my very own, sleek Tweetdeck.
2. I began using Tweetdeck's search columns for topics in which I'm interested.
Very quickly I began to find people to follow. Instead of the spambot and advertiser followers, real people with real conversations and links of interest began to follow back. Twitter then became both a tool and entertainment, rolled up into one extremely efficient window where I could channel column after column of interesting people and information in a concise format easy to read and easy to interact with.
There have been issues from time to time, and weirdo's are always abundant, but with a little love, care and sometime ruthless pruning, you too can have a thoroughly enjoyable TweetGarden of your very own.
On Fridays there is the reciprocation fest known as #FollowFriday where Twitter users tell their followers who is worth following by making an @ mention. This is all well and good, and I do like to participate, however your timeline is just a mess, and so many at a time is just overkill, truthfully.
Here is the weekly updated list of people I really enjoy, so you can enjoy them as well if they seem to be a good fit. Happy Tweets!
