State of the Twittersphere?

While technology moves forward, buzzwords apparently do not. Technorati publishes an almost annual state of the blogosphere (btw – I hardly ever use technorati – Google Alerts seems to suffice). In the spirit of true creativity (?) we know have the state of the twittersphere. Growth has been tremendous for Twitter. I haven’t heard much about abandoned accounts – a key complaint about blogs. Twitter is just easier. It’s highly social, it accommodates a range of strong and weak ties, and it doesn’t require much effort to contribute. Plus, as a bonus, you don’t have to strive for coherence.
