Despite no publicity we are closing in on 1,000 followers and nearly 100 lists, and our Tweets are re-Tweeted daily. The practice has also inspired us to scour the news each day for cycling-related articles, especially those concentrating on transportation policy and the community of cycling worldwide, which has been a gratifying education for ourselves as well!
Whether twitter is fad or not, or even economically sustainable as a company, it is, for the present, an excellent resource for us, and we recommend that you all join up and give it a try. It's easy enough to quit if you don't like it. And if you choose to read it online, you don't even have to join up.
