Unclutterer now on Twitter

While everyone is waiting to find out who will win the DYMO labelmaker later this afternoon, I wanted to share a new Unclutterer service with all of you.

Unclutterer is expanding to include additional daily tips on home and office organizing over Twitter through the user account unclutterer.

We come across so many wonderful ideas and solutions, but not all of them have enough meat for a full Unclutterer post. Instead of letting these great ideas go unshared, we have decided to let you know about them in 140 characters or less.

If you’re not a Twitter subscriber, you can simply visit the page http://twitter.com/unclutterer to see a roundup of messages. We are big fans of Twitter, though, so consider joining if it seems like a service you might enjoy. Also, check out our post “Uncluttered ways to use Twitter” by Alex Payne to learn about ways that Twitter can help you be organized and productive.

    Very cool! Although I don’t think I’ve quite gotten bitten by the Twitter bug yet. πŸ™‚ I hear it’s addicting!

    I just can’t bring myself to get excited about something called “Twitter.” The name reminds me of a hen party (google that if you must).

    Isn’t Twitter by definition “clutter”?

    @Melissa — I think Twitter can be clutter, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. It’s the same as any other social media site in that if you don’t set limits on your activity you can quickly waste a great deal of time using it. However, if you are smart about how you use the service, it can end up being an incredibly valuable resource.

    Since I work from home, it helps to create a much needed office environment for me. Most of my “friends” are business associates who send messages about software and services that improve their work. They discuss relevant industry insights and tip me off to news that affects how I work. So, for me, it’s not clutter. If you (and I don’t mean you specifically, but in a general sense) have issue with becoming addicted to social networking sites, then I don’t recommend it until you learn to control the frivolous behavior.

    I resisted getting on Twitter for a while. I didn’t want another thing to maintain. But I think Twitter is a minimalist social networking site that functions as a news feed for my personal relationships, interests, and the world at large.

    The micro-blogging aspect forces brevity which is fantastic! πŸ™‚ I like the format and can’t think of a reason I’d go on myspace, facebook, etc. because of Twitter. πŸ™‚

    Best,

    I’ve been using twitter for about a year now, but I’m becoming a little less enchanted. I was getting about 5 spam-ish followers a day, mostly businesses trying to figure out a way to exploit/share on twitter. I changed my profile to not-public. Twitter is getting cluttered! πŸ™‚

    Sounds like it might be worth joining. I have not joined for several reasons already mentioned by others. I wrote a post about why I won’t join facebook and the same goes for twitter. Now that I see others recommend it for productivity and brevity, I thinking about it.

    Anyone know how to control the twitter spam mentioned above?

    Following now, thanks! πŸ™‚

    I don’t know how to control the spam, but when I delete them, I am sure to block them, too. For awhile there, my bio said ‘no soliticing’. It seems to have dropped off lately, though!

    I think Twitter is so not clutter. It’s a way to force yourself to be focused with your words. With only 140 characters, you have to be concise! And, if you feel you’re getting spammed, simply “unfollow” someone to stop receiving their updates and/or block them from following you.

    re: how to control spam, on the FAQ page, they have a “Submit a Request for Assistance” page. click on that, and they’ll help you!
