Well, not really famous but perhaps on the long and winding road to getting there. They say that everyone will get their 15 minutes of fame. If that is so, then I have got mine!
I was going through my usual routine: checking tweets, going on Flickr, reading feeds and cruising my admin area of my blog and I notice some traffic coming from somewhere interesting. Lo and behold, it’s an article called ‘Twitter UK traffic: up 485% this year, 70% higher than USA‘. I carry on reading and I’m mentioned there! How on earth I’ve got into the ‘Top 10 search terms sending UK internet traffic to www.twitter.com, 4 weeks ending 12 July 2008‘ though, is simply beyond me.
It gets better though. Underneath the chart is the following:
I’m just pleased as punch to get such a mention and be included in the same sentence as the founder of Digg and an executive editor of CNET! I have so many questions though: am I now classed as a trend-setter? Am I really a Town Gown Transition person-thingy? Sorry if this post sounds a bit smug; I’m not full of myself or anything, I’m just shocked and equally excited. I probably don’t even deserve a mention, but there you go- my 15 minutes are up.
