I noticed a tweet this morning from @TwBirthday
@dakegra Happy 5th TwBirthday! You’ve been around since 14 November 2007! twbirthday.com/dakegra/
So, in five years I’ve posted nearly 22,000 tweets. That’s about 12 tweets a day, give or take.
Here’s a nifty breakdown of tweets by time of day, courtesy of xefer
Apparently I’m following 1,794 people (lawks!) and I’ve got 1,252 followers (crikey!).
Quite how many of them are really real isn’t entirely clear – the number fluctuates on a daily basis as spammers get caught and blocked or people get bored of my tweeting.
So. Five years, eh? Cor. Doesn’t feel like that long.
I often get asked what the point of Twitter is. People sign up, follow @stephenfry, get bored, and stop using it.
With Twitter, you really do get out what you put in. Following some interesting people, talk to them, interact.
Set up links to Flickr or Instagram. Take some photos & share them. Comment on other people’s stuff.
The more you give, the more you’ll get. I’ve made friends around the world & down the road via twitter, blogging, taking photos.
Go on, give it a go. It’s fun.
