I tell people all of the time – it may not be for you. That article has some very bad ideas – “Follow a lot people”? That is the worst thing you can do. The more you follow the more noise and not enough useful information. The best thing you can do is join in, follow some friends, search for some relevant terms that apply to your job and industry, and interact with those people. If you try to do too much more than that you will really spend a lot time just try to keep up conversations that are not going to help you in your business.
