Twitter and the Software Giants March 11, 2009

A quick post:

What is the similarity between Microsoft, IBM and Apple? They all have Twitter accounts with followers but none of them are active.
I am sure with Google going strong with its Twitter account IBM, Microsoft and Apple would all have to think on those line. Google’s followers have gone beyond 100,000 and that also when there have been very few updates only 39 in 14 days.

Matt Cutts was using Twitter very effectively for announcements, counter comments and discussions, with now Google officialy running no wonder the account should reach one million followers in net couple of months. That would Twitter Google’s most powerful aid for interacting with Google community. Currently Google is acquiring 6 new followers every minute (on daily running average basis). This number can easily go up to about 10 per minute by today evening, and should be close to about 20 by end next Monday. At this speed Google would need 24×7 set up to proactively manage their Google account on Twitter.

I expect not only Microsoft, IBM and Apple would quickly respond to this development, I expect all corporates worth their salt and their bail-out dollars would see wisdom in being here. They would not like “You are not on Twitter? Are You?
