Twitter goes German Enneagram Teacher’ Weekend, Part 0

I’m just back from the Spring meeting of the annual German Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition (the mouthful shortens to E-MT in German, thank goodness!). It’s always to good to catch up with old friends and catch some relaxed learning at the same time. One of the specialties of this approach to the Enneagram is to allow people of a particular Type tell the rest of the world how they see things.

I’ve been using Twitter for a few months and so decided to twitter semi-live from the panel interviews with people of the different Types. Just to get one thing straight: I didn’t actually twitter while people were being interviewed. Just noted some twitter-sized quotes and shared them via twibble on my Nokia E71 with the twitterverse.

I was delighted to find out that the people from as far away as Australia, Canada and different parts of the  USA responded to the reposting. Thanks to all who joined in!

It started innocently enough on Friday evening:

cj76530: On my way to the annual German #enneagram teachers weekend. Cool learning guaranteed. Any Questions?

While in the train, I got tho thinking about how I might handle any questions people would send, while not believing that anyone really would. When I got to Ritschweier, where the weekend took place, my thinking had evolved. When I woke up the next morning, I decided to experiment and see where Twitter’s boundaries might lie.

Over the next few blog posts, I’ll look at the tweets, or twitter messages, I sent from the weekend. If you’d like to tune into what people are twittering about the Enneagram, click here.
