So I posted a wee while ago that I was going to start using twitter, strangely this news didn’t become headline news around the world! Anyway, so far I’ve gained a following of 28, yes you read it here first, 28, not quite Stephen Fry.
Now I have to say I’m actually amazed that 28 folk bothered to even click that Follow button, it seems to made up of folk with a shared interest, mainly Rugby Union, some from WordPress, thank you and a couple who I suspect may be selling stuff .
There seems to be an etiquette to this following business, if your some kind of celebrity, you never follow “ordinary” folk but if you are “ordinary” you’re expected to follow back, usually you’re given a couple of days, then if no follow, you’re unfollowed!!
So far I’m enjoying my tweeting, it is amazing the sheer amount of use it gets, how do some folk actually get anything done in between tweets?
I’m even in a competition run by the sponsors of the Rugby Union league my team is in, it’s linked to the amount of times I mention them, with the obligatory # and my teams name, plus various other things, like adding pictures, location, I’m sitting around 50th, woo hoo!!
I’ve not attracted any obvious loonys, so far, though I have suspicions about one or two of my followers, no names!
Checking my WordPress Stats it does seem to have brought some visitors, my posts on here automatically generate a tweet containing a link, so that’s good.
So I will continue the great Twitter experiment, one day i will break that almost mythical 30 followers figure.
