    I see a lot of big bloggers using Twitter and from what I see it looks like they have a cult of Twitters always engaged in what their favorite blogger is doing. I think there is huge opportunity.

    A lot of people use twitter for marketing purposes. The problem is that you need a good amount of followers for it to be effective. If you have a blog there are plugins that let you show your latest twits which is a good way to get a few followers.

    A large number of followers is the key. I've got rather few so far, but I'll follow back if you follow me:

    I have yet to experience Twitter, though, I did just sign up a couple days ago. I'll get back to you once I really start getting into it.

    Emperor,
    You make some good points. I currently have 450 followers, but am trying to get that to over 1000. About the plugins, I'm currently using http://twitterfeed.com/. Have any other suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Dave
