Did a quick informal poll of my friends on Facebook tonight. I went through some the people I have meet in the flesh (about 70 of them) and only 14 had Twitter accounts.
Most of the ‘normal’ people I know have knowledge of Twitter, but don’t use it or do not intend to.
They want a deep social space with pictures, fun and popular culture. They don’t want to know someone has posted new photos, they want to see them. They go on Facebook as an activity, not use a tool.
So, in my small sphere of if the world, Twitter is dead. Facebook has won.
But Johnny, look at these stats and you don’t know what… BLAH BLAH BLAH…
From what I have learnt, being a social media expert allows for lapses of logic and fact. My space may be a bath tub in a sea of fact, but why look over the sides when my the water inside my walls feels fine.
I also plan to frequently tweet how dead Twitter is, just to stab the wound and convince myself I wasn’t wrong about joining Twitter back in January 2007 and banking my reputation on it.
Twitter broke my heart, so the bitch must pay.
