Twitter is getting…BIG!

Besides the usual it’s been a while since both me and Rambo have made a post, I thought I’d take the time to make a post now and actually most something meaningful.

For those of you who don’t know or have never heard of Twitter, where have you been? It’s like the next big just so you know! I’m actually quite surprised myself at just how big and popular the micro-blogging website is starting to become. A few years back nobody really knew what Twitter was in the first place, yet a little bit down the road, celebrities are now starting to create their own Twitter profiles and quite frankly, its starting to get off to hook!

Heck even Twitter competitions are starting to appear making them even media worthy. For example, has anyone heard about the competition that actor and comedian Ashton Kutcher is having with CNN? Ashton claimed that he could have more followers in comparison to a huge media corporation. Did he win? You bet he did, he has more followers than CNN does now and did so in a very short period of time. Just goes to show you how one person can really make a difference.

Other than that, muscians like Lily Allen are using Twitter to reach out to fans who want to see her live by hiding tickets in various locations depending on the city in which she’s performing in. She’s also doing it in a pretty strategic way by giving clues, talk about a fun game!

There’s also been rumours about Google being involved with Twitter? Pretty curious actually to see where that may go, considering that Google in itself is a pretty big and innovative company too.

Well that’s all folks. Don’t forget you can follow us on Twitter too: http://twitter.com/pikism
