In real life I have a few dozen friends and acquaintances, On Shelfari and Facebook I have hundreds of friends. On Twitter, I follow maybe 50 people and organizations and celebrities, and have 6 followers. Even this little blog has about 40 followers (thanks, y’all!).
I check in at twitter fairly regularly, read the tweets, even go to some sites linked there. Even on Linkedin, which I almost forget to ever go to, I have more incoming activity and connections that at Twitter, yet, I understand, mostly for news outlets, that twitter is the way to track whats trending and whats hot. not in my quiet little corner of the tweetdom. If any of you use twitter in what you consider a successful way, please tell what the deal is.
I dont mean success in a financial sense. I long ago gave up on the idea that i could get paid for anything creative i do, but i would like a bit of critical mass there. Talk to me you tweetheads!
