MSNBC's Keith Olbermann isn't joining the cable news Twitter frenzy. Indeed, he's upset that a fake Olbermann account amassed nearly 14,000 followers without him actually using the service.
how newsworthy is Olbermann being by talking about why he is not on twitter? you may argue, newsworthy enough for me to post his story, but the lesson in this, and what has made me post this on the community building instead of the social bookmarking threads, is how a simple social network that was introduced in a conference a few years back has driven colossal usage from the likes of reporters, basketball stars, mom & pop small biz jo.
if i am correct, twitter has grown phenomenally since it was mentioned offline at sxsw:
The service rapidly gained popularity: In March 2007, it won the 2007 South by Southwest Web Award in the blog category.
that said, log off, at least from your desktop, and start to present your network publicly offline as much as possible. i met the guys with a community network called kluster, and they told me they launched their app @ an event where robin williams took it for a test drive; 10,000 users registered within a week's time.
