I am fond of Twitter…duh.
I love that we can all connect with each other in a way that makes the awakardness go away when you meet face:face for the first time. That is Twitter.
I love that the majority of people who try to tell you that you can make a gazillio dollars with Twitter in one month are outed, made fun of, blocked, mocked & sucomb to the mob that is Twitter. BoooYaaa! *she says w/all the thunder that is her inner Al Pacino*
HubSpot has come out wtth some very revealing Twitter stats that say 50-75% of users (in my oh so humble opinion) are not taking full advantage of communicating with current, potential & possibly disgruntled customers. Yea for us that are on! And, yea for anyone that might be teaching a Twitter Workshop in the next two weeks or so *cheese*.
Here is what I have extracted from Chris Brogan’s blog who reported on the State of the Twittersphere by HubSpot:
- 79.79% failed to provide a homepage URL
- 75.86% of users have not entered a bio in their profile
- 68.68% have not specified a location
- 55.50% are not following anyone
- 54.88% have never tweeted
- 52.71% have no followers

So again, if you are using – great…take advantage of the relationships you are creating and keep listening! Just think if you would have gotten on this “blog bandwaggon” 4 years ago when the big whigs thought it was a passing fluke! 🙂
