I cover Google a lot here, because that is what people talk about in the forums - mostly. But yesterday, Google joined Twitter at and the online world went berserk. Google has 26,093 right now and it is growing. Yahoo only has 4,709 and they have been on Twitter for a while, and Live Search only has 1,434 followers. Let's not forget with a whopping 94 followers.

Google joins and gets 25,000 in 24 hours. What brand power!

FYI, if you want to follow me on Twitter, I am at I only have 3,400 followers right now.

Barry, Google's power is intense. I thought this was awkward for Google to join Twitter, because over at web pro news, I read about why Google should buy Twitter out.

Barry, your not doing too bad yourself: "3,400 followers right now", you're almost neck and neck with Yahoo. I think I'll add another 1 and make it 3401 today.

I think Twitter is great but could I just change the subject slightly, how can Twitter be used from an SEO point of view or can you not use it for that purpose?
