So Chris Brogan has this great idea, Twitter Packs. When I first read that, I thought, Packs as in starter packs, but not exactly.What Chris did is start a wiki page with very lose organization, listing various folks on Twitter, himself included. And then he told folks about it. One can instantly imagine that folks took sides. See his follow up post here.
For me, it was instant fun! Talk about a neat idea. Of course, the first thing one must do when checking such a list is look for themselves. Sadly, Missouri had been forgotten, and thus me. Tojosan has been summarily added along with a handful of other Missouri Twitterati.
Locations aren’t the only category now either. There’s a page for topics, and a page for religious and sexual orientation. Wow. Of course, they left off Baptist, go figure. Fixed that!Finding the page on sexual orientation, one could argue that perhaps that was territory better left unexplored. Why? Because someone might tag you or someone else gay or straight, and it just might be wrong. Or worse yet, you might get outted and that wasn’t the plan. Yes, I was outted as a Baptist today. Don’t hate me please.
The page I found most interesting though was the company page. Company? No, not like my boring old company, but companies like Seesmic and such. Ever wanted to find out if these folks tweet or not, well there’s the place to do it at Twitter Packs. Some of my contacts that I didn’t realize worked certain places turned up there. Cool!
So, it Twitter Packs going to survive the night? Maybe, but either way, it’s definitely interesting, and for me, I see the potential to find new friends and new partners there. How about it, are you in a Twitter Pack?
