Twitter causes readership spike

Posted on: June 21, 2010

Too bad I lost those dozen or so followers on Twitter. Hard not to notice the spike in readership.

This modest blog had its best readership during the American presidential election when people were desperate for information, any information, on Sara Palin. Best day about 300 hits. Not anyone’s readership numbers to envy, certainly, but there it is.

Then this blog languished (and so did I), dropping to five readers per day, two, one, reading what became very, very occasional blog posts.

Then I discovered Twitter. From those modest numbers a spike of 42 readers. Then I lose my place (see last post). But I am impressed. Twitter really is not at all what I thought it was.
