Twitter as Bookmark and Petri Dish

My secret use of Twitter: it's a public bookmark.

If I see a remarkable Web page, I quick-read it, Tweet it, then review it later when I have time to extract all the good ideas.

Also, Twitter functions as a petri dish for this blog.

About half the posts here began as Tweets, then incubated in the dark recesses of my brain until sprouting into fully formed thoughts.

Two Twitter ideas for you:

1) Review your web browsing history. Pick the most remarkable page. Tweet it. Then review that page and pull out one good idea for use later.

2) Review your Tweetstream. Pick the most interesting one. Expand on that Tweet until you get to 250 words. Post it on your blog.
