Embracing the

I've had a love/hate relationship with the robot that automatically tweets things I post here and over at the podcast.

In yesterday's post, I wrote about the burden I felt adding to the noise online when there is so much noise already out there and that is why I had gotten away from using the robot on my Twitter account.

But, I finally had to employ the services of the robot again @upinthisbrain because I don't always think to go out and tweet when I post something and I had missed sharing several podcast episodes during the countdown. And, with Twitter gone from my phone for almost two weeks now, I've been thinking about Twitter less and less.

Still, I do see the value in Twitter and it's typically the first app I open when I grab my iPad and the best use of Twitter I know is to see what the people I know and care about are creating. The second best use is to share something funny or encouraging. The worst use is to be a negative suction of inaction that brings everyone down.

So, I encourage all of you to share your creations on Twitter. Be proud! Be loud! Get yourself a  and let us and the world know the cool things you are doing and don't feel one bit guilty about it. I no longer do. Anyway, you can always mute me and my  if you want.
