An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Am Done with Friends.. Now I have 800 FOLLOWERS.. on Twitter!

Ok, have you been on twitter? I have been for sometime and I have been enriched by some of the useful discussion and cross-fire that goes around. By many accounts, twitter is the next big thing.. and many say that Google is also interested in it.

I think its strength is that its like a giant IM where you are talking to a lot of people – who have an interesting term for people connected to you: “Followers”. Not friends or connections… FOLLOWERS! Twitter makes one feel like a leader from the get go. And I guess one was tired of having friends in real life.. and needed some “followers”. Its time I had some “Guru moments” myself! So, what do you know.. I get 800 FOLLOWERS. That’s a huge number of suckers running after a zombie with a blog! 🙂 I may not be an Obama with 80% rating in a country.. but I have the next best thing.. 800 world wide “smart” and tech-savvy FOLLOWERS! Everyone of them is worth it!

Are you on twitter? And how many Followers do you have?

    Desh, many thanks for bringing me into the world of Twitter, and many congrats on your impressive follower count, though it pales in comparison with Britney Spears ;). I am enjoying and learning a lot from Twitter and FriendFeed, and I hope I can pay my tribute via a proper blog post one of these days. Guess Twitter is slowly killing the blogger (for whatever it is worth) in me since it is far more easier to tweet than sit down and write a proper post.

    Hahaha thanks, Suresh! I just meant it as a joke.. 🙂 I mean suddenly from friends this thing makes one go for followers! lol… You are welcome anytime… I think you are a tech savvy guy yourself and were just waiting to get into the Twitter groove. 🙂 That one of my post pushed you on is just an accident. I love Twitter too though.. 🙂
