In any event, since I automatically post my blog posts to Twitter. People have been, more often then not, ‘commenting’ or ‘replying’ to my blog posts via Twitter and not leaving a comment on my blog posts.
Here are some examples of this in action:
I wrote a blog post about this cool curved monitor and I got three twitter responses and one comment on the blog. Lee Odden twittered “@rustybrick Re: TV – I do watch sports on a “secret” TV in my home office. Shhhhh :).” Jennifer Laycock twittered, “@rustybrick drool. That’s incredible. Robert would step on kittens to get that.” And Brian Mark twittered, “@rustybrick I’ll send my address so you can have a monitor shipped to me. :).” Yea right!
So, instead of having a total of 4 blog comments, I now have one blog comment. Would they have spent the time commenting at my blog? Who knows.
I just feel Twitter is stealing my blog comments. Twitter Cannibalization.
