If you’ve been using a Twitter a long time, then you’ve probably started to pick up on certain patterns from the people that you follow. This is certainly my experience, and perhaps it just means that I need to follow more people.
Why? Well, because if I open Twitter, close my eyes and think real hard for about thirty seconds, then I can easily predict many of the updates to my Twitter feed. I call it my Twitter Crystal Ball, which is not to be confused with the prognostications about Twitter’s product and business model changes by an endless array of technology analysts.
What about you? Can you accurately forecast your Twitter feed? For the record, I have a lot of respect for the sources that I’ve listed in the image below. I like their content (which is why I follow), but I’ve definitely come to expect a steady diet of predictable Tweets from them.
So whether it’s TechCrunch beating Mashable by about ten minutes on breaking technology news, Brenna Ehrlich and Tristan Walker proving they’re hip to the latest trends, Drunk Hulk proving he’s a genius, or my buddy John checking into a sandwich shop, my Twitter Crystal Ball is pretty accurate:
