"Twitter's audience right now is limited to the 'cognoscenti'"


So wrote Jefferson Graham in his July 21, 2008 USA Today Money section cover story, quoting Gartner analyst Allen Weiner.

Jeez, are there really 2 million people who can be referred to as the "cognoscenti?"

'Cause that's how many users Twitter had in May of this year, according to Graham's article.

It comes as no surprise to you I'm sure that TechnoDolt™ here still hasn't twigged.

Last I looked there were 28 people following my Twitters, the last of which (top) appeared on November 26, 2006 at 8:33 p.m. ET.

You could look it up.

I've read that some people in the neighborhood of 50,000 followers.


Well, at least I was an early adopter.

You could look that up too.

Boy, if they only knew what you really do when you're at work.

Don't worry — I'll never tell.
