Is twitter a big, fat waste of time? Is twitter traffic that big a deal? Everyone is on the twitter marketing bandwagon but is it actually paying off? From what I have seen, twitter is nothing but a big, fat free advertisement. That is not a good thing. Why? Because everyone is there trying to sell something. That doesn't covert into sales for you. Followed 800 so far, have not found anyone yet who isn't hawking his/her own product/blog. These people are not interested in buying, they are interested in selling, just like you and I. Messages come back instantly asking me to peruse and otherwise partake of their "wonderdeal", no matter the niche. The genuine Ma and Pa or teen who are anxious to part with their cash are few and far between. Everyone there has a gimmick or angle they are pushing. So, where is your bang for your buck's worth of time spent on twitter? I welcome all thoughts on this subject.
