I've recently done some purging. I'm moving into my new office. This has given me the opportunity to sort through my "stuff" to decide what's important and what I need. There are things that look good, but do I need them to fulfill my duties at school? No...
I just did the same thing with the tweeps I'm following on twitter. I went through my list and made decisions.
"Does this person tweet useful information?"
"Do I learn from this person?"
These were the two main questions I looked at. I also looked at the last time they tweeted. There were some who haven't been active in months. Unfollow....
Now, why did I do this? It looks good if there are big numbers by my twitter id... but I've decided to follow those I find value in.
I also want to clean up my feed. I want the good stuff. I found myself moving very quickly through tweets... I probably missed some really good stuff..
I also noticed that I got a bunch of new followers in the last week. I engaged in some conversations regarding #iste10 . I imagine that some people started following lots of people who were there, or involved in those conversations. I welcome those followers, but hope they follow me because I provide them with something.
Just some thoughts on cleaning.. Is it a good time for you to clean?
