In addition to I’m With the Press, my aggregation of all the mainstream general news Twitter accounts into one (and accompanying survey of the news media’s use of the tool), I’m doing a couple more “Twitter experiments.”

First, next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I and some coworkers are going to cover the Indie Games Con via Twitter exclusively. To get up dates, follow the GarageGames account. If you’re attending the IGC and would like to take part, visit GarageBlog for more details.

Also, a month from today, the Committee to Protect Bloggers, along with, are sponsoring Twitter4Kareem, a way of memorializing the one-year anniversary of the unjust imprisonment of an Egyptian blogger. If you’d like to take part in this, read the CPB post to find out how.
