What is happening with Twitter? A week ago almost 400 people were following LPI_Library and I was following about 1/2 of that. Now both those numbers are less than 1/2 of what they were a week ago. It seems folk are leaving in droves. If it were just my followers going down I might reevaluate how I was posting but the people I follow has also been dropping so I can only assume either 1) Twitter has lost people's accounts or 2) people are leaving Twitter for other services.
I have created an account on FriendFeed. I'm capturing my Facebook, LPI_Library tweets, and postings here. Maybe this is where all the cool kids are hanging? Maybe Pownce or Jaiku or ?
This does raise a problem. Just what is our attention span with new tech tools? Twitter is not yet old enough to have been mentioned in any books and already it is passe. How can anyone keep up with this? How far ahead of the curve are we going to be? If all our users are a year or two behind us, are we serving them by continuing to move on?
