Today I spotted that 9.6% of my site traffic comes from Twitter. I presume many people use it to track blog posts (instead of RSS). Not sure how many retweets there are, but I’ve seen some guys doing this.
I’ve been testing Twitter for month or two, and I kind of have mixed feelings about it.
On the other hand I feel like it’s one bloody big swamp – a time sink if you want. Even the guys who have interesting stuff to say, they seem to also have some unrelated stuff I don’t want to hear about (how strange is that). Of course that’s natural, and it’s pretty easy to skip one unrelated comment. But when the same guys make more “useless tweets” versus “useful tweets”, it’s time to think whether to follow that guy or not.
It becomes some sort of signal versus noise challenge.
Anyway, it seems that Twitter indeed brings traffic.
And… sometimes there’s something pretty useful too (in fact – something surprisingly fun stuff, since all happens so fast there).
Still haven’t made up my mind about the service… but meanwhile follow me and send me a message there, and I’ll follow you (as long as you have game/business related stuff in English).
What’s your thoughts about Twitter now?
