    Twitter hits 32 million browsers - Anyone here see the appeal yet?

    The little micro-blogging service that could has powered passed Bebo, LinkedIn, Digg and The New York Times, and it’s still adding 10 million unique browsers a month.

    TechCrunch quotes figures from market tracker Comscore that show Twitter is enjoying exponential growth. In February, Twitter had 10 million unique. In the space of three months, traffic has tripled to pass Digg (23 million), LinkedIn (16 million), the NYTimes.com (17.5 million) and even Bebo - and ComScore’s numbers don’t take in those who’re tweeting via cellphone.

    Facebook still seems far ahead, with around 200 million unique (making it one of the web’s top 10 properties). But as TechCrunch points out, Twitters growth is still accerating. In March it added 9 million tweeters, in April 13 million.

    In all areas, Twitter's growth is breath-taking. Except revenue, which remains $0.

    I recently signed up for Twitter and do not understand how to use it effectively. I know it can be a traffic driver. I read Shoemoney's article claiming that it was the #2 traffic driver for him. I can understand that. He is well known and easily picks up followers.

    I've talked to dozens of people who signed up, could not figure out how it is useful, and then abandoned it. It may have a lot of new sign-ups, but I suspect the majority do not use it for very long.

    Why do they ask for the password to my e-mail account? I'm not going to give them that and they should not need it to send out Tweets.

    When I signed up I immediately started getting porn spam from "followers."

    Can anyone give a brief set of instructions about how to use Twitter effectively? I am looking for a set of tips.

    They will make their money when Google or some other deep-pocket organization offers then $5 billion for the company. I see it as kind of like the dot-com business models of the late 1990s. There was no hope that most dot-coms were going to be profitable. The business model goal was to take the company public and make money on the stock sale, without ever making money selling a worthwhile product or service.
