I am a twit but you wont find me on that stalkers hand book (Facebook)

Twitter is just another blog that gets your website further up the search pile on google I am willing to do that.

Je suis dans twatter...

BileMonkey. But don't disown me. Best not go there in the first place. In all honesty, my bowel movements simply aren't as interesting as Stephen Frys.

I sometimes twit therefore I sometimes am.

I often found myself writing something but then realised even I did not find it that interesting so did not bother to post. Lately I don't even start writing. Probably not the ideal medium for those with confidence issues.

I don't want to appear disparaging Pete (though I undoubtably will), but Twitter is all about interaction. You need to connect with the people who are following you, share interests and get involved... Looking at your timeline, it seems to me that EPZ are using Twitter as a glorified RSS feed, and it just doesn't work that way.

Everything EPZ has tweeted so far is a link back to EPZ. There's no attempt to collaborate, to share, or to canvas opinion about anything. If someone used it in the right way, then you could drag dozens of people in... Right now your Twitter feed seems all about self promotion without interaction.

As a case in point, have a look at the samsung promo that epz is currently advertising (and one epz member (at least) has already won), or possibly the LowePro Twitter feed. It's a remarkably grown-up way of communicating, once you've grasped the give and take of it...

I'd actually be quite interested to chat with you (or the team) about it... I've been using it for a while now and think there are some elements that could be incorporated very easily that would bring things to the site - could we perhaps do that?
