Speak Softly, but Tweet Loudly!

The squeaky tweet gets the grease! After posting a message within the Tweetworks CwDev group that I intended to abolish the group due to lack of interest, I got the following response from Mark Langford, head and founder of Tweetworks:

"Don't go anywhere my friend! The new Tweetworks release is happening very soon."

This kind of personal interest is rare, and appreciated. I did follow up with a request for more information on what is in the new release, and what the advantages are over Twitter lists. However, I thank Mark very much for his response, and the Tweetworks group will continue to exist, hopefully with a lot more members.

More about Mark can be found at this link.

Harsh Realities - Some Groups Will Go Away

To all:

I am happy to report that my "real life" has gotten a lot busier, however, as a result, several inactive Courseware Development groups will be discontinued. By "inactive", I refer both to membership counts and to lack of member posts.

The following groups will go away:
  • Konnects
  • Xing
  • Tweetworks (to be replaced by something else Twitter-oriented)
I want to thank the members of these groups for their participation!
