What does Twitter actually `do` for Website owners? Are there backlinks to your site which will help PR, or what?

Although you can link to sites in twitter posts, I doubt it really helps pr wise since there are just so many links posted and they probably are not weighted very high. I have a twitter account, but very rarely use it. I think internet marketers like it because if you have enough people who follow you, whenever you launch a new site, product, or sell something new as an affiliate you can announce it to everyone who follows you. Some people have thousands of followers.

Having said this maybe I am too missing whats so great about twitter.

I just think it's just a thing to spam just like Myspace.

Microblogging website Twitter has apparently become more popular than social news aggregation service Digg according to number crunchers and web analyst Hitwise.

Latest figures show that Twitter is the 291st most visited website in UK, shooting up from 2953 back in January 2008, a 974 percent improvement in one year alone and this only paints part of the story as Hitwise doesn't account for mobile users and those using third party applications.

Hitwise, whose ranking is based on Pageviews alone, shows that Twitter was ranked 84th worlwide while Digg was 85th, nothing that Digg's popularity shrunk marginally compared to last year.

Twitter in general also attracted more users than Digg in the crucial 25 to 34 age bracket, accounting for nearly half of Twitters accounts compared to less than a quarter for Digg.

Events like the recent Hudson River plane crash and the Mumbai bomb attacks have been pivotal in recruiting more Twitter'ers and giving access to a more mainstream audience.

Twitter, which counts 31 employees and whose sole purpose is to allow users to write posts of up to 140 characters in length, has hailed as the next big thing after recording a phenomenal growth rate and attracting a $500 million bid from none other than Facebook.

The three year old company has raised money from a number of venture capitalists but have yet to come up with a revenue model (although the Japanese version of the site is supported by advertising).

Twitter has also given rise to a number of third party applications that have helped grow Twitter's popularity. Twitpic.com, Tweetdeck, Tapulous, twitterank.com and many more now form part of a very dynamic and fast-growing ecosystem.

But at the end of the day, it is unlikely to matter since both services are complimentary rather than rivals and Hitwise only depicts part of the whole landscape.

I hope that they don't sell out to Facebook. They see a threat coming up, and they want to acquire it before it gets too big. I would hate to see twitter become nothing more than an application on FaceBook, it stands well on its own.

Microblogging is really getting popular now a days. With twitter, I simply like that feature to follow certain people's activities. And so, with this tool, you shouldn't miss any update.

Ofcourse I don't know exactly, but if you feel this as spam then why many people are behind it? Now a days twitter is the word heard everyware.

Twitter's getting crowded recently. I think in 2009 many people will finally discover the marketing power of it. Take a close look at this site, you can use it for personal branding.


My experience with Twitter has been very positive. First of all it stimulates interest ... since each "tweet" is short, it is easy to follow and respond. However, there may be a down side, namely if you fall into trivia. I would try to follow the advice of Mike Dillard, here, and always try to "add value". Good guide-line.

I agree! I am fairly new to Twitter but I know personally I do not follow anyone if I see no value being added to their tweets.

Hey,

Here is a free viral twitter following generator that I think is worth a look. I was hesitant at first since I didn't want to risk my account getting banned for growing too fast.

But after looking at this I could see it is independent of Twitter and is a really good system. Not to mention it's 100% free and you don't even have to give your email!

Here's the link, take a look and let me know what you all think.

Get 1000s of Twitter Followers Free Click Here!

Once you have 10s of thousands of followers you can twit them with all your promos anytime you want.

This is brand new so jump on while the train is leaving town!

Best wishes,
Zac
P.S. there is a learn how to use twitter promo after you join, but you don't have to use it, I didn't even take a look at it.

I don't know what you mean, I joined free. Yes there is a backend product they sell and an email capture but you don't have to do that to join the tweetergetter.

I don't get a dime if someone buys their other products. The tweetergetter is totally free.

Check your facts before making accusations.

I'm not a scammer and don't appreciate being called one.

Zac
P.S. I just took another look, there is a learn how to use and profit from twitter promo after you join, but I wasn't interested in that so I couldn't even tell you how much they want for it.
