I enjoyed reading Hubspot’s State Of The Twittersphere today. It contained interesting statistics, but mostly confirmed that Twitter is reaching critical mass when it comes to growth. Somewhere around 5k new accounts are created daily.
Although I don’t contribute to Twitter that much, I am a lurker. I follow 56 people and have not added anyone to that list in some time. Why?
I have found the people I follow contribute to Twitter too much. Guy Kawasaki is a big violator in this regard. Every time a new Alltop link is created, it is tweeted. This makes for a lot of tweets in one day and sucks the air out of the room in Twitterific. I can’t hear the people I want to hear. Still, Guy does have some good tweets every once in a while. So, I don’t want to “unfollow.” What is my solution?
