Your Twitter experience is all about who you follow. After all, those accounts will generate the content you see when you visit your Twitter home page.
There’s no real limit to the number of Twitter users you can follow—and with more than 271 million monthly active users posting 500 million tweets every day, there’s always something new and fresh to read.
But as you might imagine, keeping up with all of these posts can quickly get out of hand—especially if you don’t check your Twitter newsfeed regularly.
So how do you keep your Twitter newsfeed manageable? Here are some tips.

If there’s one thing that’s true about any Web-based application, it’s that change is inevitable. While Twitter doesn’t often make major changes to its interface, the recent update to its user profile feature was a complete facelift, leaving a cleaner look and more features for sharing information about yourself with others.

My last post about Joomla! triggered some buzz in the twittersphere and prompted more discussion. Jen Kramer wrote to me that Maria Langer (lynda.com WordPress 2.7 Essential Training author) contacted her:
Maria Langer contacted me by Twitter and said she’d love it if you asked the same question about a WordPress course. Now I’m wondering if we couldn’t make this a more generic series of movies, suitable for Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla. They all have the same starting place for their customized templates/themes — a static HTML web page.
Tom Geller (lynda.com Drupal Essential Training author) has been coordinating a CMS Overview course that would explain the strengths and weaknesses of the different systems and help newcomers navigate which choice to make.
So, open question to you all – what are we missing in our various CMS courses?
