Saving time and managing information – Diigo, Twitter, Blogs and Netvibes To keep up with new online resources try diigo. Diigo makes it easy to use twitter to share professional resources. Many professionals check twitter irregularly like once per day, not all day– not unlike email – it has great professional collaboration uses– but there must be moderation and effective use – it is not possible to follow everyone.
