Twitter is stupid.

But since Google's sampling the feed, we gotta be part of the matrix. I've got an account up and running and am doing occassional tweets. And if I had $1 for every follower, I'd have change back from a $20. But I've been at it one week, and my followers are real people.

>Twitter is stupid.

I guess it's only a system. ;)

I've found some great info on twitter that I probably wouldn't have found for a while, if at all.

There are still lots of folks that continue to pump out nonsense tweets, and they are not on my follow list.

Gloss over all the hype and nonsense, and you'll find some good content.

Twitter is just another channel to gain some visitors.

People with websites must have a Twitter channel feeded with the rss channel of their website and then, search for some followers who like these content.

It's only one channel more; if you have a website you must fulfill a lot of them: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn... Google, Bing...
