After the LinkedIn and Facebook phenomena, here comes Twitter. When the short process of account creation is done, you can start writing small “posts” of maximum 140 characters. Twitter is a kind of micro-blogging platform. It is somehow between the blog and the chat. You can discuss a topic, and people can answer to your tweets. If you like someone’s topics, you can follow him. You will then discover all the people he follows and the ones following him. You can of course then connect with all these people.

At this stage you may ask yourself two questions. First question: why would you use Twitter? From a professional point of view, you can build a network of people in your field. You will also be aware of what happens in a particular domain. This is much more dynamic than a forum and it spreads faster than a newsletter.

Second question: what can you write in less than 140 characters? You can share an interesting article, highlight a website, point to a blog post, mention a nice book you have just read, some news you want to discuss about and many other things. In fact I use Twitter when I want to share something that would not deserve a whole post on my blog.

If you want to give Twitter a try, here is a list of data miners on Twitter. I have also mentioned their blog or company when available:

Also, don’t forget that you can see the following and followers of everyone. Here is a nice blog for more tips on Twitter. If you are a data miner and if you use Twitter, feel free to add a comment to this post and mention your user name.

  4. I just starting tweeting to see what it is like…the only problem is that the Dean Abbott you list as me is not me! I don’t know who it is, but my twitter id is not yet public. Funny quote though…

  10. I don’t use Twitter much. It was started as a work event thing (my social networking analysis).

    I try to simply update it with titles of my current main projects.

  42. Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Mason Diego. You can contact him through his email:

    Hello everyone, am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mason Diego did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email Mr Diego via: { } or call (608) 728-8913 and be free of internet scams. thanks… Kathie Roper from California, USA.
