A Year on Twitter

Filed in Off-Topic, Social Media by Matt McGee on April 30, 2009 2 Comments

Today is the one-year anniversary for me being on Twitter. You may remember the “Twittering for Charity” contest Jeff Quipp and I started on April 30, 2008. (see here)

I started working on a post last night about why I love Twitter, and was going to post it here as a follow-up to that contest launch. But it ended up not having much to do with marketing — there’s a bit of that, including stats on how much traffic Twitter sends to this blog. But after finishing the whole article, I decided it was more appropriate for my personal blog. So, if you’re interested, head over there:

One Year Later, Why I Love Twitter

If you’re a small business owner still not sure about getting on Twitter, you might find something in there to convince you to give it a try. I hope so!

  1. Hey, Matt, after about 5-6 weeks of experimenting on twitter, one of our businesses deffo got one “possibly interested” person. LOL. Of course the business sells a service that is not inexpensive.

    But 1 is better than ZERO

    Lets see we are following about 240 in that local market…and have close to 70 followers.

    How many actually read our tweets? LOL…maybe 2 on a good day 😉

    Actually not so…after using short urls we are getting references. use cli.gs. it provides analytics and they are matched on our site analytics

    Good to hear, Dave. Thx for the update. I’m a cli.gs user, too. The stats it provides are a nice addition.
