Come Join Your Fellow AWAIers on Twitter
“Oprah discovers Twitter” … “Ashton Kutcher beats CNN in Twitter race” …
I asked AWAI’s social-networking guru Jim Turner what … if anything … all the recent headlines about Twitter mean for you and your business.
Jim’s take: “Oprah’s joining Twitter is further evidence that social media is here to stay and is fully legitimate. Twitter is experiencing explosive growth. According to comScore, Twitter grew by 131% in the month of March alone, taking it to a total of 9.3 million users. There’s no doubt Oprah is going to stoke even more growth. Within 24 hours of joining, she had over 310,000 followers. She will undoubtedly shatter a million followers within 7 days.
“Another thing to note is that Twitter’s growth is coming from an older demographic than expected … the 45- to 54-year-old group. They’re 36% more likely to join Twitter than the average person. A lot of them are on for business purposes, making Twitter a phenomenal marketing tool.”
Launched in March 2006, Twitter is a free social-messaging network that allows users to post brief reports on what they’re doing and thinking. Twitter has proven to be a powerful business tool by expanding a company’s reach, tracking current trends, and keeping people connected in real time.
