Twitter, the little micro-blogging site that could has seen an enormous growth lately. Traffic to the site has nearly doubled in the last two months seeing 1.2 million unique visitors per month. If you’re not on Twitter you might want to consider it. Twittering or micro-blogging (as it’s commonly referred to) is getting bigger each day as applications for this form of promotion continue to grow. Don’t believe me?

I love it and just started using it. I loved the results I have seen at Facebook this year and my virtual team urged me to twitter. I am a few days in and have already gotten a few interview requests and new access to some great resources.
Thanks for your post!
Hey Sheri – I’m so glad you’re having fun with this, Twitter is great! I’m following you!
Hi: Penny, I’ve been watching you with fascination for a while but am older than dirt and broke as the Ten Commandments. I’m one of those writers who loves to write but I’m still squeezing ink cartidges out of the grocery list (and the price of gas is fast shortening the grocery list :-/ )- pardon my gripe, I know I’m far from alone(!)That’s one reason I haven’t contacted you before. The other is I’m about an eyelash above computer illiterate. Just thought I’d put my two cents in and send you a compliment (I do know how to do that :-))
Hey Jackie! Thank you for your post, thanks for reading and thanks for “stepping out” and commenting. I’m so glad you did. Keep plugging away and keep in touch!
