Time for your weekend Blog Of The Week – Twitter! We certainly wish we hadnt started adding these to the index in 2007, now theres over 820,000 of them and rising! The site is principled on the question: “What are you doing?”, with a post limit of 140 characters. People post about a variety of topics, see a search for ‘blogshares’, for example. Users post their activities frequently, and have thousands of both followers and other users they themselves follow. Of course, their own blog holds the top spot on the Top 100 List, along with twitter blogs for Barack Obama and Wil Wheaton, not to mention tech pundits Kevin Rose, Jason Calacanis, Robert Scoble, Justine Ezarik and more. How can you not want to get involved???
Now, sitting at No. 8 on the Top 100, the index entry for our recently elected President shows nothing but growth – added in June 2007 (the month before my stroke, would you believe), at this rate it’ll steal the top spot from the Twitter Blog, with (at this time) over 530,000 users following his activities on the site. Keep an eye on this one, folks.
