A few days ago I had an idea for simple ‘g_rouping’ on Twitter and announced a new Twitter user as a gathering point for MID and ultra mobile PC friends. There’s no sign-up needed, no passwords to enter and no 3rd parties involved.
All you do to join the group is (be a twitter user and) follow the user g_ultramobilepc.
70 people have already signed up so all you need to do now is take a look at the ‘following’ list (I’ve weeded out a few bots and spammers so it’s cleaner than the ‘follower’ list) and ‘follow’ them back.
So go ahead, connect the mesh by following the followed and enjoy the information. If you spot any spammers or bots, just DM the account and I’ll look into it. If you want to be ‘unfollowed’ do the same and let me know via DM.
P.S. This idea seems to be working well. I encourage other bloggers and specialists to do the same in their niches. Keep the naming convention (g_) which will make it easier for Twitter and third-party services to grow around the idea.
