Twitter Brand Index
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Ok so I signed up for a Twitter account months and months ago. At that time I didn't really see much point in using Twitter. As a result I neglected to update my status. Recently there appears to have been a huge interest in Twitter.

So just what exactly is Twitter? Well twitter is a social networking and microblogging service utilizing instant messaging, SMS or a web interface. According to twitter FAQ's,
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing? Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own.
It's simple enough isn't it? You have 140 characters to tell the world what you are doing. It doesn't get easier than that. So here are a couple of questions that I had?

How often should you update what you are doing on twitter?
What is the best way to get people to follow you on twitter?
Is the only true benefit to having followers on twitter the simple fact that you are letting them know what you are currently doing?

But wait.... here is something that I thought was cool about twitter. The Twitter Brand Index. The Twitter brand Index was something that Chris Davies pointed out to me. It's a great place to check out folks and companies that are on twitter. You can find companies and people and events through a number of different categories including things such as media, finance and banking, healthcare, and executives and politicians (from Guy Kawasaki / Alltop.com http://twitter.com/guykawasaki to Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) http://twitter.com/BarackObama or Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) http://twitter.com/schwarzenegger)

The Twitter Brand Index is pretty cool. Thanks Chris, good find.

You can even add a twitter badge to your blog. Twitter is just another way for you to get in touch folks that you might be interested in. If you are interested in SEO-Space feel free to follow us on twitter. http://twitter.com/seo_space
