Twitter is going tweeting mad

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

Hey, even the Prime Minister is doing it.

    Good catch on that news.com.au article! That’s a brand new article. Generating quite a bit of discussion on Twitter due to the use of the word “interesting”. Also, it’s an outrage that I’m not on it!

    Anyway, I really like your take on Twitter. With the right network in place, you can use it to your advantage in remarkable new ways.

    Cheers Greg. Just after I hit the publish button I checked Twitter and saw the discussion flaring. I wonder what will be the hot topic for today?
