It really is all about the numbers. Metrics, KPI’s call them what you like, it’s all about numbers.
Only a month ago, I couldn’t have given 2 hoots (a technical measurement) about my Twitter account (@AshMcGrath) and the number of tweets and followers. That though has changed, and as I write this, I’m hovering at 496 tweets. Only 4 off what I see as my first real milestone – 500 tweets.
It’s easy to get to 50 and 100. Heck, I could get to 50 tweets just testing my implementation of LifeStream and posting from other apps to Twitter (remember: @AshMcGrath). So the number 500, seems significant. That is, until I get to 502. Them it is a disappointment that I’m not closer to the seeming impossible value of 1,000. Roll on 1,000!
