We all know twitter is the latest and greatest online marketing tool, but people aren’t always forthcoming with any actual numbers or traffic gained from it. I happened to catch a post of mine being re-tweeted a few times the other day and thought I’d share the results.
My original post, 15 logo design disasters, was tweeted by a visitor to my site ( thanks @downwithdesign ) after which a meagre 14 people re-tweeted it. As a result, I received about 2,700 unique visitors from twitter alone, for that post, on that day.
This is small beans when compared to the viral potential of twitter, I get handfuls of these from time to time which is great. Fingers crossed and waiting for the big one.
How about you?
What sort of traffic does a tweet normally send your way?
Update 10/08/10: I’m afraid at the time of writing twitter refuses to show older tweets to allow me to give credit to the appropriate person, but I caught my post on the I Love New York logo design making the rounds yesterday, with 26 retweets bringing in about 3,400 unique visitors from twitter that day, for that post. Thanks to you, mystery tweeters.
