Just because there are people signed up for twitter, it does not mean they read it or care about it. “Follower” is another word for a person with a bunch of junk mail and posts they don’t read.

Twitter is the new groupon. Trying to convince investors and advertisers that they have eyeballs and real users they don’t really have. “Give us ten million dollars and we’ll get you on every spam list in Eastern Oklahoma.” Yay?

Most likely because people have spent more time on Reddit. And then, some other site will come along and be the new hip thing, and people will flock to that… and so on and so on. Which is why these are crappy things to invest in… even medium-term.
