    I think geolocation apps are great for bloggers to show their readers where they are, what are they doing and initiate new interesting conversations because of that.

    Personally I can’t be bothered to get on twitter and send out random tweets all day. It just doesn’t appeal to me. The current Twitter stats are quite amazing though. 50 million tweets per day is huge.

    It is not enough to discuss about the achievements of twitter in last four years. In its journey of four years, many people got traffic for their online or off line business. I am also one them.

    Up to now I do not have a Twitter account. I am still not convinced about it. What is the purpose??? I think it only works for already known companies or VIP’s but not the regular guy. Maybe I am wrong.

    Alot of people don’t know this but you can use twitter to build backlinks! All those “url shorteners” are killing your backlinks. There are hundreds of websites out there that publish and display content and “links” from twitter based on the subject of the status (topic).

    Tweeting your “actual” urls can result in several do-follow backlinks and many websites especially if your site is a very popular niche!
