Twitter Watch

Have I written enough about Twitter lately? Probably. But here's some more anyway. This time I thought I'd round up some of the Twitter related stories that have found their way onto my laptop screen over the last few weeks. Who knows, it may even become a regular feature...

"We know how we're going to do it, and we're very confident about how we're going to do it, and it's not necessarily in our interest to tell people how we're going to do it" - Todd Dagres, one of the VCs behind Twitter

SEO scepticism
