#wa: A Twitter channel for web analytics professionals
Jason Egan started a really cool thread over at the Yahoo! group asking about people who Twitter and it got a ton of response. I think W. David Rhee from OX2/LBi is working on a master list but I thought of a more “Web 2.0” way to self-identify using Twitter channels and Twemes.
The channel “#wa” was more or less open (as are most channels, for now at least) and so if you’re a Twitterer and you’re writing about web analytics, you can help create what might become a useful body of knowledge and help self-identify like minded individuals on Twitter by simply adding “#wa” to your twits.
So I might Twitter: “#wa Boy, people sure are complaining about Omniture being slow today … is it slow for you too?”
For me the jury is still out on whether Twittering is actually useful, although I do admit it’s kinda fun (at least when Twitter is not down, which it is from time to time.) Who knows, maybe the #wa channel would become the new Yahoo! group, complete with inappropriate Fred McMurray comments and everything 😉
