It can be difficult to navigate through all the information Twitter puts out every second of every day – and there's a lot of it. Too often, the info that we're actually looking for and interested in goes unnoticed because of the deluge of perhaps less-than-valuable (to each of us as individuals and organizations) odds-and-ends demanding our attention.
