Twitter vs. RSS, the Early Results are In...

Twitter vs. RSS

Back in November, I created a Twitter account as a social media experiment of sorts.  At the time, I was most interested in Twitter as an RSS feed alternative.  Would people follow me on Twitter instead of subscribing to my RSS feed?

It only took a few months for the number of people following me on Twitter to exceed the number of people subscribed to my RSS feed.  Here are the totals this morning.

117 Twitter followers
104 RSS subscribers

I swear by my RSS feeds, but I've noted the hesitancy of the "average joe" in adopting this form of syndication.   Twitter, on the other hand, seems to be more user friendly... less intimidating.

I have two questions for the readers here... 1) Do you use Twitter?  2) Do you use RSS?
