Yes if you are a blogger, you blog, then you have to Tweet. Why? Lets see.
Bloggers use Twitter much more than does the general population. Yes it is true. Bloggers say they use Twitter to promote their blogs, bring interesting links to light, and to get a feel for what people are talking about.
In year 2009, the trends set by Twitter, the most eminent microblogging service today have made a huge impact on bloggers & have came as the leading blogosphere trends for this year. This is what State of the Blogosphere 2009 report from the blog search engine, Technorati analysed while leading blogosphere trends for 2009.
About 73 percent of bloggers use Twitter, compared to about 14 percent of the general population. About 52 percent of Twittering bloggers are syndicating their blog posts to Twitter.
Technorati found that blogs with more than 100 page views a day received just 0.83 percent of their page views from Twitter referrals.
In fact, some bloggers (26 percent) spend so much time on Twitter that it has eaten into the time that they spend updating their blogs.
Now look at the bloggers are not using Twitter. Among the bloggers who don’t use it, 35 percent say they simply don’t understand the point of it. Another 54 percent say they feel no need to blog the details of their personal lives, in spite of the popularity of personal musings.
Technorati’s report also focused on the growing political influence of bloggers. The blogosphere’s impact on elections, from local politics to national elections, is growing. (Image Credits: Technorati)
