The Death of Twitter

I have been hearing about the death of twitter since I started using it...
My prediction? It's here to stay for a little while at least, and considering they just turned down a US $500,000,000 dollars offer from facebook, it appears the Twitter team think so too.

Check out all these articles I just found, we'll see which ones are true and false in time.

Well nothings stopping it at the moment - Growth for 2008 was 752%, nice.

Well that is all for now. I will edit this post later (maybe) and I'm off to get busy elsewhere.

One thing is certain: Twitter is FAR FAR from dead, and is in my opinion, just beginning to hit mainstream use and will grow HUGE in 2009. We'll see.
