I was tempted to do the same thing at some point and point people to my feed when they want to keep in touch, and I might come back to it. Even though, Twitter is nice to do small talk and gossip, so I would include Twitter in my aggregated feed, not push everything to Twitter, to keep the noise/signal ratio low. At some point it's just a matter of taste I guess. I see. I was tempted to do the same thing at some point and point people to my feed when they want to keep in touch, and I might come back to it.

To me, this is the place where you can find what I'm doing/thinking, alongside many life dimensions (personal, professional), hence I use it as a broadcasting aggregator.

Even if you are just linking to a resource, it's best to do it with a bit of a human touch. You will be more entertaining and you will touch more people that way. Also, people who are interested into your feed will subscribe directly to it. If they see that the same content is broadcasted on Twitter, they might not follow you there.
