TheDomains.com has maintained a Twitter account for just about as long I we have been publishing the blog which is coming up to 6 years.
In the last 30 days I have noticed a huge spike in new followers to @thedomains that have a huge amount of followers themselves.
These are business oriented accounts, publications, money making guru’s and people from outside the domain name space.
Obviously its a judgement call where all these Twitter Whale accounts (yes I just made up that term) are coming from but I’m going to peg them to the new gTLD program.
With more and more mainstream stories covering the new gTLD’s and national advertising campaigns now dedicated to the new gTLD domain name, it seems to me that people that never paid attention to the domain space are now very interested.
The number of followers to @thedomains that have over 10,000 followers themselves have increased tremendously in recent weeks especially followers that have 50,000 and 100,000 or more followers.
I think this is good news for the domain space.
For those that have active Twitter accounts is anyone else noticing a spike in number of followers and numbers of followers that have a 10K, 50K and 100K or more followers?
