    I've noticed some people's Twitter account has a page rank pretty decent, like 5, but mine is zero.

    I checked out one person's backlinks and there were only 8, and these were there because they happened to have a comment on the person's Twitter page, when the Google Bot visited the site.

    So my question is, do you need to get decent external links in order to get a nice PR on Twitter, or because it's an Authority Site, is it probably a case that Google doesn't yet know my account exists, and if I get it to spider it, it'll soon get some decent PR?

    Thanks in advance.

    It doesnt matter if they had a page rank of 10, twitter is no-follow.

    A valid point. One that left my head just before writing the post :p

    Twitter has the benefit of getting a page spidered quickly, if a Twitter account is linking to the page in question, is that correct?

    Thanks anyway.

    yea... Twitter's homepage has a rank of 9 so for the rank juices to flow to the sub pages, it is pretty easy for Twitter accounts to gain an average rank of 4. I previously had an account with a PR5 but it goes back to zero when I change the username but it shot up to 4 last week after the Google PR update.

    How Goog is assigning PR to twitter pages is still a bit of a mystery. I've seen posts claiming that number of followers and recency / number of posts is a factor. I have also seen info from Google stating that their Social Search algo is looking at these items. I do not think that external links pointing to your profile is heavily weighted.

    I agree with YoungGuy! nofollow vs follow - whatever! I've ranked a blog in #1 spot in Google solely through commenting on nofollow blogs using my keyword as my "username" linking to the page I want ranking - it may not hold as much weight, but it does give some credit - and for a couple of my niches, enough to rank #1 in Google!

    And non believers - I've tried and tested it!

    Additionally Twitter is a nice way to jump onto the 1st page for your chosen keyword ;)
