Twitter – Waste of Time or Useful Tool?

twitter.pngI’m not going to write a review of twitter, mainly because I have only started using it recently and I’m undecided about its practical uses. If you would like to see what others think of twitter you can read a review here or here. I did include two videos in this post so you can get a quick idea of what it is and how it works.

What is Twitter? Twitter is a social messaging tool for staying connected in real-time.

I do find it very cool that I have access to other SEO Experts and even cooler some of them have been kind enough to read what I’m twittering about. If you are interested in what I am doing you follow me at http://twitter.com/ShellHarris. Is anyone else twittering. Please pass along any thoughts on this social media tool.

Update: I was amazed to find the Google pulled an alert for me from a Twitter comment I made. I had made a comment about our newest SEO Comic and my alert pulls any mention of “SEO Comic”. So Google is caching my twitter page. The link are all nofollow, but we know Google follows nofollow they just don’t apply an link popularity from them.

The following videos can demonstrate the genius or madness of Twitter. I am yet undecided.

Or you can watch this video.

  1. I just don’t see any practical use for it. The very second it does become a useful tool it’ll be choked to breaking point with spammers.
