Followers on Twitter

Thursday April 12, 2007 I published a post regarding Twitter:
It's probably not the last time you hear about Twitter. this morning an email arrived from the person responsible for this product, and as you can read:
Twitter is the hottest IT product for the future:We Won Some Stuff
While we were in Texas, Twitter won the SxSW Web Award. We were excited when we went on stage but Jack kept our speech short,
"We'd like to thank you all in 140 characters or less--and we just did!" After SxSW, Twitter-fever started to spread. This morning, we were informed that Twitter has been selected as an Official Honoree in The 11th Annual Webby Awards. Now we feel kinda fancy but a lot of this attention is because you guys keep Twittering and inviting friends to Twitter. You rock!

This post was a follow-up of another post published some days earlier. Twitter and Twittervision.
Although I have had no influence of their Royal Highnesses twittering, I wonder if they also are following the global tweets on Twittervision. My ending of the post from April was (in Norwegian):
Det medførte at jeg raskt overvåket om mine egne Twittermeldinger kunne oppdages, og plutselig i ca. 2 sekunder kom jeg frem på verdenkartet (se bildet).

Jeg vet jo at noen er redd for å synliggjøre seg og sin lokalisering, og syns man bør begrense "Storebrors" muligheter til å spore våre liv. Det er ok. Jeg etterlater meg elektroniske spor overalt allerede. For noen år siden het det "Jeg vil se mappa mi", og nå bør det kanskje hete "Jeg vil kjenne mine fotavtrykk". Desverre tror jeg den kampen er tapt for lengst. Bli med på den moderne verdens gleder og bli en Twitter du også.
My recommendation from 2007 is still valid, See you on Twitter.
