Every day for the next week or so I will be interviewing a variety of marketers, advertisers, bloggers, SEO consultants, businesses, artists and Internet gurus on the latest micro blogging sensation to hit the interwebs, Twitter.
At present it’s still largely us web enthusiasts (geeks) who are using Twitter. It is changing and moving into the mainstream though with people like Britney starting to use it. How do you think it would change if everybody, even your Granny, was on Twitter? Will it still be ‘cool’ to be on Twitter or will we look for the next toy?
What was your first tweet? 10 extra points if it was ‘Checking out Twitter’ :) myfirsttweet.com
I have a soft cap of about 300 people to follow. Even that is too many most days. If I know someone in real life or they are good friends outside of Twitter, that’s an automatic in. Otherwise it’s solely based on if I think you tweet interesting things, which I can see from your Twitter homepage. It does make me feel guilty in a weird way sometimes, having 10x more followers than people I follow, but there is nothing I can do about that while still keeping Twitter useful for me.
Thanks Chris! If you’re at all interested in web design then you should be following Chris Coyier and also checking out CSS-Tricks for some great tips on all things CSS, PHP, HTML and other web design goodies.
Tomorrow’s interview will be with blogger and self confessed Twitterholic, The Daily Blonde.
