We’re now on Twitter (and Identica)

If you’re on Twitter — and a lot of writers and nature bloggers are these days — you can now follow the Festival of the Trees there @treebloggers. (Thanks to Georgia of Local Ecologist blog, @localecologist, for the suggestion.) We also signed up for an account on the much smaller but steadily growing Identica service, also @treebloggers, both because we believe in open-source software, and also because we suspect that in the long run, Twitter’s centralized, closed-silo model will lose out to a federated microblogging system, which Identica is part of. But for now we’ll be pushing the same content to both services, and the updates will consist mainly of links to posts here at the coordinating blog and to new festival editions as they come out. So you don’t need to join Twitter or Identica just to keep on top of FOTT developments; you can still just subscribe in a feed reader or via email.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
