9,000 twitter followers…. what does that mean?!

My twitter feed now has over 9,000 followers… I’m fairly certain I now have more folks following me on twitter than on my blog.

What does that mean!?

What’s really interesting is that if you look at the top users only four are “real” people: Leo, Justin, Merlin, and Scoble. The others are software (twittervision, twitterriffic), CNN, and a presidential candidate.

Scoble has 12,000 people… wow.

Right now I’m adding around 50 folks a day. If that keeps up I think I’ll have around 25,000 folks in a year. That’s really wild when you think about it.

Twtitter is the #2 referrer of traffic to my blog… behind Google. Wow.

    It’s a powerful tool. I completely blew it off when I heard
    of it. Now it drives 7% of my blog’s traffic.

    that is some good information. I think it is important new users or people that are wanting massive followers can use the same tools upcoming signed recording artist are using. I found 3 links that a new recording artist is using and people say will have over a million followers soon!
    If you are wanting over a million I suggest you get on board with them before they get banned!
