Happy New Year's Eve. It is a time to look forward and now there are a number of blogs that focus on Twitter, perhaps it is a sure sign of the Apocalypse. Apocalypse is Greek for "lifting of the veil") and is a term applied to the disclosure to certain privileged persons of something hidden from the majority of humankind. It also means the coming of the end of the world which is the main message associated with the term. Perhaps twitter will be used to broadcast this event.
One of these blogs is TwiTip run by the people who bring us Problogger, an excellent resource. The tag line is Twitter Tips in 140 Characters or More. I guess you move to a blog when you get over 140 characters. Many people started a blog because they were tied on hearing sound bytes on issues. Now the sound byte people have a great channel. Perhaps I should start a Twitter category on this blog as I am beginning to generate a number of posts. For now you can use Google site search to find them.
TwiTip recently had a post on Ten People All Twitter Beginners Should be Following by Mark Hayward. I will let you guess who is on it and then go to there post. To no surprise a number of top bloggers are one the list. I remember when I first set up RSS feed and there was a suggested list of who to subscribe to. Well some of the these people, Guy Kawaskai (31,390 followers) and Robert Scoble (41,488 followers) are on the twitter list. Also see Guy Kawaskai's thoughts on how to use Twitter as a marketing tool. He says he goes fo a large following rather than an influential few. Guy says to get as many followers as you can but he is trailing Scoble at the moment on the other hand he has about 31,386 more than me.
A number of other top bloggers made the list also. I guess that social media stars fame goes across channels. With these reported follower audience sizes, I wonder when those prophets who crave a mass audience will discover Twitter, if they have not one so already. Who are your favorite Twitter feed people?
