After Tweeting and finding followers within other social networks like Ning.com, I have come to the conclusion that Twitter has yet to really tap into additional audiences besides tech geeks, moms, PR pros and… stalkers.
I realized this when a handle that I followed on a different Twitter account (my small business) played catch-up with me @timotis. Sure, I had a Ning.com site for my small business which is how this individual found me initially, but how did they know to follow @timotis? That sort of thing is disconcerting, and it tells me Twitter could be a place for up-to-no-good types. Has anybody received requests to follow you, then you choose not to follow, and later find a suspended account due to “suspicious activity”?
Right now, Twitter seems like a safe-haven but what’s going to stop hackers from “Twitterbomb” (people tweet about this but apparently it doesn't exist anymore) viruses? Or perhaps a fail whale could drain this microblogging site that receives tweets from only 7% of the United States still. A small, concise world indeed.
