Social media benchmark

Sometimes I share my post to various social media sites.  This morning, as it happened, I shared a post almost simultaneously to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.  On my hit counter, I now see

  • 80 hits via Facebook
  • 30 hits via Google Plus
  • 23 hits via Twitter

Wouldn’t you have expected G+ to come in a lot lower?  Despite the general sense that it’s a total failure, there really are a fair number of people using it. 

Just to reassure you the Earth is still on its axis, Google Search provided 58 hits and Bing 2.

Why am I on Twitter?

The editor of the book I’m writing said it would be a good idea to have an account up and running well before publication.  So I could say “I have grudgingly agreed to use Twitter as a means of letting people know about my book.”

Except let’s face it — I like social media.  I like blogging and I like Facebook.  I even like Google+!  So I think I’m going to like Twitter, too.  Only an excuse was needed.

What does Twitter have to offer that other platforms don’t?  It’s very simple — on Twitter, I can ask Manny Machado about his already-legendary fake-to-first-trap-the-runner-off-third play in a crucial game against the Rays last October — and he answers!
