Was It Something I Said?!

Twitter is becoming increasingly popular with mainstream media, from newspaper coverage to radio presenters interacting with their listeners. Twitter has been referred to as the most talked about service on the web and recently entered the Top 100 UK Site Listings. The social networking and micro-blogging service allows it's users to connect and follow users' updates (known as tweets). The interaction extends beyond just the web interface as well because regularly users organise events (tweetups) to socialise. Like Twestival for example -
Whoever said that people use the internet to avoid interacting in real life were proved wrong at the third London Twestival, held in Shoreditch to raise money for charity:water [Source]
I arrived in the office this morning and checked my inbox and was presented with multiple follows from people on Twitter. Although for many users this could be standard and why SocialToo - a site that allows auto following - is popular. Not sure of the source of the follows; whether it was directly from one of my updates or someone with influence mentioning my name. It could also be from using hashtags from Twestival (#ldntestival) although I don't really feel I made that much of an impression. Anyway thanks for the follow and when I get a chance I will work through all the emails that I have sorted to a folder and return the follows :)
