My first 100 Twitter followers

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

It’s pretty interesting to see how a Social Network builds up over time…yesterday I reached the ‘milestone’ of 100 people following me on Twitter.

It is interesting since most of my real-life friends are not nearly as geeky as I am ;), haven’t heard of Twitter at all, so; no followers there :(…(if only they knew/realized the power of Twitter, oh well ;)).

Next to that, I’m not the kind of Social Network Junk who just follows everyone I can find on the web (and then get a lot of followers back…the ‘I scratch your back if you scratch mine’ technique). No, most of the people I follow have been carefully selected…the rest are people who started to follow me first and, if they are interesting enough, I will follow them back.
