As the practice lead for Quality Management, RQM is an obvious topic but Twitter is a new interest of mine and I have to say I am now on the Twitter bandwagon. I don't know about you but I had signed up for a twitter account a while ago.. but I didn't really get it at first.... I've just been lurking for a while. I was actually a little intimated at first by the terminology ... what's a @ sign what's a # hastag what's the Twitter etiquette and what's up with all those new Twitter words - I needed a Twictionary. While I'm by no means an twitter expert yet I'll be sharing some of my Twlessons(new word I just made up :-) ) in upcoming posts. So if you're a newbie interested in learning more stay tuned.
But for all of you Twitter experts and even you newbies I thought I'd talk about how you can easily add twitter feeds right into RQM.
So you might be asking yourself how does the ability to add a Twitter feed into RQM help me do my job better?
- Improve team collaboration - One of the challenges faced by the test team is how do we improve collaboration with others in the organization. Why not add a dashboard tab and add in the twitter feeds from your teammates? Now you have all the feeds in the tool you spend most of your time using.
- Improve your expertise in a subject - Follow other experts talking about topics you want to learn more about such as Automtaed Testing, Software Development, Cloud Testing, Social Media, Agile Development , etc.
- Share your knowledge and experience and build your community presence and professional network - My desire to build a larger and stronger Rational's Quality Management community is what inspired me to start blogging and posting to Twitter. I've already developed some new contacts and I look forward to connecting with all of you who may be reading this blog.
Log in to RQM and from your dashboard, select Add Viewlet icon
