I’ve noticed that more and more bloggers are getting their posts fired out at random times. I do know it helps people see your writing, especially on Twitter, when a lot of people won’t see a post because Twitter is so instant. I think the service I used the most is ‘Networked Blogs’, randomly a blogger friend will have that throwing out one or more posts from their archives as Tweets. The thing is about Twitter, as it IS so instant, is if you’re chucking stuff out automatically, then it can make you look a bit of a prick.

Why?

Well…




My case was illustrated beautifully (or not) on Saturday morning, at 1am, when the news broke that the body of little Mikaeel Kular had been found.

Twitter was awash with shock, grief and sadness (punctuated by a few transatlantic people I follow tweeting as normal).. BUT. In amongst the sad tweets, were a few ‘timed tweets’ from bloggers with reviews of crap they’d been sent, or archive posts. It’s not the first time I’ve seen this, I understand that scheduling posts to go live, and them then being Tweeted is a bit of a ‘must’ – heck this is being written on Sunday night and I’ve posted it NOW. But, I dunno, randomly chucking out stuff at any time doesn’t really ‘feel’ like what Twitter is about.

Twitter is instant, and in the moment, watching any live event unfold via it is fantastic, and having ‘droid like’ tweets being sent into it just ‘feels’ a bit against the ‘ethos’. Of course it’s good to share posts, but perhaps manually? You don’t want to be the one tweeting about the review of the washing powder from 6 months ago when the Queen dies, do you?
