I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Twitter is great.
One of the best things about it is using links from people I follow to discover new blogs, stories, pictures and videos I would not have found otherwise. As these have been recommended by people I’ve chosen to follow, they tend to be more focused than “Stumble Upon” recommendations are. They also tend to be new and current as opposed to those things that have been round the internet block once too often.
