Twitter can curate bird photos
One of the recent additions to the free service is the ability to create Lists where we can group together similar "tweeters" based on topic, region or any criteria of your choice. I created a birding list and really enjoy being able to read, respond to and "retweet" birders' posts more efficiently. The list also includes organizations that are not birding-specific but deal with nature and conservation.
Today, the value of the list crystallized again after seeing three tweets in quick succession with the phrase or "hashtag" Wordless Wednesday. Some bloggesr and tweeters who take bird photos like to share their photos via Twitter with that hashtag (which serves as a hyperlinked search tool of similar tweets).
Here are the three tweets:
LadyWoodpecker: New blog post: Wordless Wednesday http://bit.ly/7XvrTj
blobbybirdman: Blobbybirdman's Peregrinations: Wordless Wednesday http://bit.ly/6mchdi
LRockwellatty: Today's Wings on Wednesday #wordlesswednesday http://twitpic.com/tppvq
If you've resisted Twitter as one of those silly online time-sinks, perhaps you'll reconsider after enjoying the constant supply of bird photos and news provided by other birders and nature-minded tweeters.
