for me I have made some excellent connections via twitter both for work purposes and for personal. I now have a modest number of followers and I follower an equal number of people. I have connected on a social level with Greeks/Cypriots around the globe who are interested in Web 2.0, twitterers in my region and people who are interested in our Second Life work. In fact on a better scale than linked in.
I also, I have to admit, follow the likes of Stephen Fry and @wossy. I even followed Russell Brand just to see how quickly his number of followers would rise over the hour, two hours and 24hrs etc. I'm now connected to a wider audience of people which reflect my interests and my local community and have in turn met some of them either in Second Life and in Real Life. As a result of a twitter we found out that we'd been mentioned in dispatches by a presenter at an Ideas Performance event, I twittered back who then asked me to write a blog post. As fortune would have it I was meeting the client for a coffee and between the two of us we responded http://ideaperformance.com/2009/01/27/birmingham-and-second-life/ all within an hour of the first tweet. Now thats what I call magic!
