1000 Followers on Twitter
Going on holiday is a good move, it appears. Traffic on OM&HB is up, RSS subs are up and I’ve just hit 1,000 followers on Twitter.
I’m only following about half of the people who follow me – and 500 is about my ceiling. Twitter has evolved for me from something I only use to communicate with a small circle of friends, to something I use to monitor sentiment and activity amongst a whole load of people who work in similar fields to me.
And, interestingly, it has become my main internet presence, which significant amounts of traffic coming from it back to this (and other) blogs. I suspect we’re only just seeing the potential of these real-time, flow applications to change how we publish.
