How has Twitter helped or hurt your blog?
Submitted by Guy Kawasaki, co-founder of Alltop.
Most of my traffic and people visiting my blog were not bloggers and would never subscribe to the site. I got most people to join the email list or met through networking.
Twitter for me was the missing piece. It has allowed content both new and old to have life and lend credibility to twittering. Where others need to develop content to go along with twitter. Twitter gave me an outlet for the content.
In addition several new posts were influenced by quotes or headlines that got traffic via twitter.
