A bit of a newb question, and seeking thoughts on my idea.
Do we have confirmation that twitter posts count for rankings in Google? If so, I gather that I need to mention my URL in the twitter post to gain any traction?
Secondly, I believe that in my industry, consumers won't follow me on twitter. But - I can likely get my competitors and others to follow me on twitter. Are there any attributes about the followers that matter? i.e. is it just the sheer volume of twitter followers? Or does the fact that they're in the same industry as me matter?
