What is Twitter for? Pimping your blog!

At the Blog World Expo a few weeks ago someone asked what Twitter is for and I answered “pimping your blog.”

Hey, it works for TechCrunch and Mashable, why not you?

Or me.

So, I’ve finally figured out that I was clueless because I didn’t have a Twitter account for my blog. When people say they are unfollowing me because I’m too noisy these feeds are the antidote.

scobleblog is for following ONLY my blog. I won’t put anything else on that feed.
scoblemedia is for following ONLY when either I post video or am on someone else’s video or audio shows.
building43 is only for items that are posted on building43.

My regular Twitter account, scobleizer, is all that and more.

For instance, if you followed scoblemedia you would have seen the Gillmor Gang video that was just posted to Techcrunch where I argue with Mike Arrington about the differences between the iPhone and Motorola Droid.

As to what my blog is for? Pimping my Tweets! :-) Hope you’re having a great weekend!

By the way, how did I do my scobleblog Twitter feed? I’m pulling RSS into Twitter using TwitterFeed. It isn’t exactly fast (takes several minutes for items to show up often) which is why you’ll see my blog posts first on my main Twitter feed (I manually pimp my blog on that instead of waiting for the slower feed reader to work).
