This article will not give a definitive answer. Instead, it’s a platform for discussion.
But it’s not because I’m seeing a huge rise in traffic. In fact, a larger percentage of my traffic came from twitter before I joined. I attribute this not to a failure in my tweeting abilities (though they could no doubt be improved,) but because the relationships I’ve built with other bloggers has been strengthened and therefore more of my referral links are coming from my friends.
And that’s what twitter’s done for me. It’s allowed me to strengthen relationships. And build new ones. There’s tons of blogs out there that I visit only because they’ve followed me or they’ve been mentioned by someone I follow.
In the spirit of building relationships, let’s have a follow party! Link up to your twitter account here. When you do, make sure to follow the others on the list.
How has twitter helped your blog?
