I don’t really work twitter very hard but I do share information on it quite a bit. Just like facebook I get a lot of new stories and stuff that I can’t put on the air due to time issues but I share them with followers via twitter.
So I have never really paid attention to my twitter stats very much but today right after I published the Jeffrey Tucker episode I was on twitter and saw something really cool, it said my followers were 9,999 and thought, oh crap if I get one more it will say exactly 10,000.
Well I hit F5 figuring if Jeffery shared stuff on twitter two I might pick a few new folks right away, turns out when you are at exactly 10,000 twitter says 10K, it just so happens that right at that very second I got my 10,000th twitter follower.
I know there are people with million of twitter followers so hitting 10K may not seem like a huge deal but given our space and demographic I think it is a pretty cool thing. Further, I also thought it was cool to actually by total chance catch the exact moment of hitting my 10,000th follower.
Whoever you are, thanks for the follow!
I wish I had not gotten so excited and hit refresh so fast and grabbed a screen shot of the 9,999 screen, but it is too late for that. I did manage to catch the exact moment of the 10,000th you can see it below.
Let me pause for a second and say thank you to all of you who listen to and support the show. Cool milestones like this could never have occurred if not for those of you who have stuck by our side though so many growing pains all the way back to June of 2008!
