Worth an article – my January 2012 tweets 2


OOOoops. I think I got a tad, a wee bit, a little late on that one. Indeed, I am presenting you my selections of tweets for January with one month late. Be reassured, the February selection will come this week as well.

I still believe Twitter offers a good complement to this website. So if you are on Twitter and like this selection, don’t hesitate to start following me. However, I am wondering if I should propose you a selection of my tweets each month.

It indeed takes A LOT of time. Please tell me if you want to keep it or I shall stop publishing those selections.
