Men Please Take Note, As Celebrities Begin to Tweet Women are Sure to Follow

shaqtastic2As they say, the early bird gets the worm. So, if any of you male advertisers are serious about the female market finding you on the Internet, Twitter should be among your  goals as you build an online footprint. The Twitter nation, already made up of nearly 6 million users, is growing exponentially on a daily basis. We have talked about it a good bit here, but as celebrities jump on women will be right behind.

I began following Shaquil O’Neal a couple of months ago. I’m a huge NBA fan, love Phil Jackson and hence watched Shaq for years. Anyway, when I first started following The_Real_Shaq he had about 12,000 followers. This morning when I last checked he had 121,988 followers.

Facebook began about five years ago, accumulated a few hundred thousand users within its first year and now has over 175 million users. Suffice it to say that as Twitter has nearly 6 million users, it is impossible to guess where it will be five years from now.
