Do You Want Another Email From Twitter?
By allison_n on May 19, 2012
I love being connected to my social media tools, whether it's my Facebook profile, Facebook page, Twitter, LinkedIN, Pinterest or videos I candidly make. Moreover, I like to manage my relationship with these online vehicles on my terms, which is why I like that these social tools give me the option to control my notification settings.
On May 14, Twitter announced it plans to email all users a Weekly Digest of most relevant Tweets and stories shared by people we're connect to and most engaging Tweets seen by people we're connected to.
Is this what I want?
Do I need a Weekly Digest?
News and information moves so quickly on Twitter; will the majority of content in my Weekly Digest be irrelevant by the time I open the email?
I am still trying to determine the value-add. I'm mulling it over!
Yet, here are some reasons I think it may add value:
- I can catch up on stories my connections, and even leaders I follow, found relevant that week
- I can learn about issues my connections care about
- I can engage with Tweets retroactively and reignite online dialogue on the subject
What are your thoughts on Twitter's new Weekly Digest feature?
