Twitter done right by @walrusmagazine

My inbox. “The Walrus is now following you on Twitter!.” My immediate reaction: oh gawd, please spare me. Another publication joining the micro-blogging fray only to shovel their RSS feeds into Twitter and to provide no real value…



Thankfully, I was completely wrong. And wrong enough that I felt I should comment on how right The Walrus is approaching the exercise.



Their approach? Simple. Witty, upbeat, and personal. Fun banter with other publications on Twitter, like @thismagazine, @spacing, and @blogto. Engaging with the community, not broadcasting. Check out @walrusmagazine on Twitter and take notes: twitter.com/walrusmagazine



Encore.
