Worth an article – my February 2012 tweets


I know, I am way late on this one. But here is my selection of most important tweets for February. There are so many great articles there you have enough to read for the next weeks.

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
