Yesterday I shared some of the blogs that I read. After doing so, I got some responses and tweets about it. It made me realize that I have quite a few poker friends and poker pros that I follow on Twitter. I follow about 380 twitterers and I am followed by as least as much.
Recently, when I mentioned that I wanted to find a way to cover up my cards when I play online poker, I got back at least 8 responses. Some were suggestions of how I could accomplish that. Thank you. Two were supportive of the concept and one even supplied me with a poker article about a poker player who played against 180 and won the tournament without once ever looking at her cards. One of the respondents was genuinely concerned that I might be giving up an edge to my opponent if I tried that out.
For those of you who don’t know about twitter, let’s just say that it is a method of communications on the Internet. Twitter allows you to express yourself in a message of 140 characters or less. The messages are called “tweets”. The persons sending messages are called “twitterers”. Go to Mashable.Com to see a whole list of twitter terms.
If you don’t have an account, that’s ok. Go to WWW.Twitter.com. Just use their search box and type in #poker or #tpt or even stevebrogan. There you will see the information that people are typing; their conversations. Caution: People are allowed to say anything they want, so cover your ears if bad words might offend you.
If you don’t use twitter, you might be missing out on a new experience. Start slowing. Follow people and organizations that interest you. Participate and enjoy.
Do you use twitter to enhance your poker experience? Do you follow the pros as well as the amateurs?
