To cross-post or not to cross-post

I've been vaguely wondering whether I should cross-post my twitter updates or my book reviews from Goodreads over to my LJ. Part of me thinks that this is a cool idea; part of me thinks that anyone who is really interested is probably either following me over on twitter (or has friended me on Facebook, where my twitter updates are cross-posted) or has friended me on Goodreads.

So, here's a poll. Feel free to elaborate on answers in comments.

Not to be rude, but I am deeply ambivalent about twitter updates.

However, I would love to read your book reviews! :D

That's not being rude - as much as I love twitter, I'm uncertain myself about whether twitter updates cross-posted to a livejournal add much value, especially when many of them constitute only half of a conversation. I think if I had a convenient way to collect just the "here's a neat link" updates and put them in linkspam posts, I might go for that.
