I've been much more active on Twitter lately, primarily because I've seen an uptick in both family members and friends using the service. Unfortunately, along with being more active on the input side, I've also been paying much more attention to the output, following as many as 53 people at the time of writing. What I've found is that, somewhat like the situation I'm currently in with all the feeds I'm subscribed to, it's getting harder and harder to keep up-to-date. I still can't even fathom how there are people out there following tens of thousands of people. To try and make things a little more manageable, I'm going to go through and prune the list of people I'm following tonight. I guess we'll see how it goes.

I just started twitting too. But I can see, that it can be dificult to follow a lot of people. Time will tell:)

I use Twitter almost every day. Think it's fun to see how it's progressed, I miss having the Google livefeed. You need to keep track of your hash tags and your followers, I found a user was copying my tweets (not re-tweeting) and impersonating me. The verification system isn't always up to scratch, as proved by the Wendi Deng case.
