It’s hard to believe it has been almost 2 years since my first tweet. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of great people inside and outside of my industry and profession, and publish a few blog posts on the topic. A few examples include:
Looking back the growth of twitter has been astounding. In April of 2009, there were 1.5 billion tweets. 9 months later (as I write this) there are 7.6 billion tweets and counting.
