The mind mapping community has adopted the social networking tool Twitter big-time, with at least 18 bloggers, developers and mind mapping enthusiasts active on this social networking tool. It has quickly evolved into a wonderful tool for (briefly) sharing ideas and resources, and for networking with other like-minded people.
Here’s a list of the people who are “tweeting” about mind mapping, and links to help you to explore what they’re talking about. Some of them post quite frequently, while others are “lurking” quietly, absorbing the flow of ideas and resources that others are sharing. My recommendation is to click through to view each person’s Twitter page, and consider “following” them for a time. If they’re not adding any value to you, you can easily “un-follow” them. I look for thought leaders, who are sharing articles, websites, tips and resources that I wasn’t aware of. I urge you to do the same!
