Twitter in Perspective

It’s good to keep trendy technologies in perspective. (Ha! There I said it!)
For instance, this article is useful:
Twitter Quitters Post Roadblock to Long-Term Growth (Nielsen)
How Many People Actually Use Twitter? Mashable
While Nielsen predicts that Twitter’s numbers will double by the end of 2009 to 12.1 million it’s good to remember that Facebook has “more than 200 million active users, or even MySpace still tops 150 million.
Does this mean libraries can ignore Twitter? No. It’s just important to remember that Twitter represents (probably) the innovator/early adopter communities that we serve. Facebook and MySpace have been mainstream in most markets for a few years now.
