Shawn Blanc: RSS v Twitter

Some nice research from Shawn Blanc breaks down readership from RSS and Twitter. The main question is "which is better"? For techēse, traffic seems to roll in nicely from RSS, but a few lucky retweets can really spike traffic.

In the end, though, I don't think sheer traffic numbers are the goal. The goal is to inspire critical thinking and conversation amongst readers. Whatever methods are available to facilitate that is fine by me.
