How to get out of your Twitter rut.

Have you noticed how your twitter stream sometimes gets stuck in a rut ? Are you bored with people fixating on the same bit of new technology ? Is Google Wave really worth all those characters bashed out on Twitter ?

Well here’s a simple solution. Tweak your stream. Put the techies into a list of their own and close the lid for a while or sign up a few fresh faces.

I like to have a sprinkling of comedians in my stream because they make me smile and invariably British comedy writers have a great eye for a story, I guess that is where they get their material from. @Mitch Benn, @quantick, @Alannucci, for example.

Thinking more widely and bringing in some unexpected voices can really freshen things up and stop you thinking that Twitter is just a bunch of social media experts talking to themselves.
