Do you want to CONNECT with me via Twitter?

I started using twitter about 4 months ago and today I only have 13 followers. I abandoned my twitter account for the past 4 months and focused on others, but perhaps I`ll rethink and join this movement.Twitter is an interesting service and I am just learning how to use it now. As I was adding new people to follow I noticed that there were a real range of people in the list. There were Twitter users with thousands of subscribers and others with 20 or so.

List of top 5 most popular Twitter user:

1. BarackObama (81,019)
2. kevinrose (63,279)
3.  leolaporte (55,893)
4.  cnnbrk  (38,4150)
5. alexalbrecht (37,477)   

Add a daily updating TwitterCounter to your blog so everybody can see how popular you are. First Check your Twitter Account by entering your username in the search box, then go to our button code page and copy the code.TwitterCounter for @bonoriau

I find the more people I follow of interest, the more who follow me back. And that leads to other traffic. Twitter has been a great source of information for me. This is another avenue open for blog promotion. As with other areas, it may or may not work for people. Twitterfeed.com is a service that will automatically twitter any post that you publish on your blog. The latest twitter came up with is unique TwittAd. TwittAd puts ads in the profile pages of Twitter users. Want to try a new Twitter-based application? Take a look at Dwigger, an interesting tool that enables voting and threaded conversations on Twitter tweets.

Have you experimented with Twitter? How did it work for you? What other tips do you have?

  5. Hi, Thanks for stopping by and leaving comment. I've been thinking about Twitter, but the prior owner had already joined Twitter so I'm afraid if I go to do it, it will show up as "already member" then there will be the matter of what is your password, username ect. ect. I've had this problem with Feedburner and several other sites that I've tried to sign up with. But maybe I will try twitter and see what happens, if I do I'll be sure to come over and be friends. Thanks again and stay in touch

  6. I don't have any followers yet, because I just signed up last week, and still not using it yet, as I'm quite made myself busy doing something else. Perhaps, I have to get it started soon.

  39. Hi! First of all, thanks for regularly dropping on my page.

    Secondly, every time I comment you drop a comment back on my page, often with a comment irrelevant to my article and it's obvious it just serves the purpose of self-promotion. This is not 'returning the favour', this is spam.

    Secondly, I recently wrote a post about a blog carnival for expats and requested those people participating to leave their link in the Mister Linky widget. Why do you linkspam my blog? You're not an expat, this is not an expat blog, and I've not seen an expat-related submission from you.

    Please refrain from this behaviour. It might not be intended that way, but I consider it to be spam.

    Thanks,
    Bas

    P.S. Nice post, as always. You're a good blogger. Now following you on Twitter (Spartz).

    ReplyDelete
  40. Bas, thank you for remaining me...I'm only replying your comment and to say thank you....we have different way of building social network. I have no problem if my friends comment even not related to my posting..I'm really appreciate every comment cause I still remember when I start blogging to get one comment really very hard...I'll stop immediately spaming you Bas..:):)
