Sorry, No followers
So and So is now following you on Twitter. Who? How did they find me? Why might I want to follow back? That's been a common bit of internal dialogue for me lately. Often the answer lies in our mutual friends or followers. Social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook make this easy. Not so with Twitter, which is why I was excited to find Intersect.
At the bottom of many blog posts (including this one) and website entries you're likely to find a widget that allows sharing to social sites or emailing to a friend. ShareThis competes with other systems like AddThis and SocialTwist to give publishers an easy-to-install sharing method.
