Not Twittering? You better get on board!

At first glance, Twitter appears to be the underdog in the battle of social networking.  But at closer glance, Twitter is up more than 752% for the year.  That's according to Compete, website analytics.  At that rate, it won't take long for Twitter to catch up to the big dogs like Linkedin and of the monsters like Facebook.  

Another interesting point to note is that MySpace is down for the year almost 10% while Facebook is up over 85%.  Those stats could be the direct result of all of us "old people" invading the tween, online space for business!

See you on Twitter
