Twitter Changes

Monday, April 19th, 2010

I decided to shake up a few things in the Twitter realm. Not with my personal account, but with the one I had been using for the Magic of Eyri Podcast.

Originally, many months ago, I had created the account to be a ‘character’ Twitter page for the main character Steve. But, while it was fun at first to tweet “in character,” I quickly lost track of it because I had to remember too much (I was trying to stay in tune with where the podcast was).

After I began sharing Twitter/Facebook duties for LansingNext, I saw I could use my Magic of Eyri account in many more useful ways. I change the name to @MoEpodcast (short for “Magic of Eyri Podcast”), so it would be easier to remember.

My goal is to kind of keep that account and my personal account somewhat separate, although I’ll tweet about MoE stuff on my personal one. It shall be a fun experiment.

I also inspired by what some of my friends have said on Twitter about not following people who don’t follow others, and not liking “one-sided” accounts, which my character account certainly was. One friend put it brilliantly as “I’m here for conversations, not broadcasts.”

And since I don’t have to worry about continuity and plot, I can have more fun with the @MoEpodcast account.

I’m changing the badge in the sidebar to the new account as well and I won’t really be picky about who I follow, like I am with my main account.

Come back Wednesday for a brand new episode!
