I first got the idea after seeing James's twitter feed being taken over a while ago, atleast I assumed it had been taken over. Whilst the relentless broadcast of back to back tweets seemed adverse to the spirit of twitter and more in the world of spam, I liked the rythem of it. The way long sentences were followed by single words. It reminded me of Robin Sloan's fish app again, that slowing down of cognitive digestion that I was exploring with Switch To Manual.
I wanted to mix this with the consistency stuff I've been thinking about lately.
So got to thinking about a twitter feed I could put out just once a week, on a very rigid set schedule. And that that feed could simply be a digest of some interesting wisdom I'd learnt in the past seven days (as a kind of extension to Wisdom Tooth). Which would in turn force me to rethink what I'd leant from that wisdom, and how best to re-tell it to other.
And that's it in short. I'm toying with the idea of splitting it into a 3pm feed and 7pm feed, I've never really seen twitter accounts that are fragmented by their frequency rather than subject matter, I think that could be interesting. I'm also hoping to experiment with the amounts of content and in what kind of rythems (sentences/ words/ all captials/ punctuation etc) to test what holds peoples attention to best, and what just becomes intrusive.
