Twitter has dominated the headlines in the past couple of days. From Copyblogger providing 5 Steps to Going Viral on Twitter, the Telegraph showing Twitter traffic up 974 per cent in a year, and more locally (for me) news.com.au giving us Australia’s most interesting Twitter users – Twitter is really gaining momentum.
It’s going to make a lot of traditional web content writers re-think the best way to get a message across. Sure social media has been popular for a while, but the speed that a well-timed and well-targeted link can be distributed around the Twitter network is simply mind blowing. Same goes for word-of-mouth recommendations for work. It’s the ultimate online referral system.
So are you tweeting yet? I’ve just joined the ride – follow me at http://twitter.com/snappysentences
