I don’t recall the exact date I joined Twitter but I haven’t been around very long. Infact, I had six followers up until seven days ago, as of this writing I have 607! Your probably wondering how and why, right. I do subscribe to the Guy Kawasaki theory of getting follower’s, but not entirely, he has a very cold view of getting followers on Twitter, that’s based on his words not mine. He also hits the nail on the head when he say’s that Twitter is a secrect weapon, I am in complete agreement. Twitter is a Gold Mine if you use it correctly.

A week ago I decided to do some research, this reseacrh was on using Twitter and what the big deal was all about. Well, I’m learning what Guy has already figured out but at another level. I believe there is a pattern, a flow if you will in who follows who. Sometimes it’s random but there seems to be a common denominator that is rising to the top in my research. I hope to complete the first stage of my research in by December 31st, 2008.

My tip at this point is to look for connections in the person’s BIO, sometimes they don’t have one but a ton of followers, go read some of there comments and try to figure out why.
