leave a comment »

Countries that are lagging in the development of social media, need to take notice of developments in an unlikely place – Iraq.

It seems that blogger and US secretarty of State,  Hilliary Clinton, has thrown her weight behind the expansion of social media – including the micro blogger, Twitter – by the Iraqi government.

Meanwhile, Twitter’s booming growth has taken another huge jump.

A US survey revealed that Twitter.com traffic went from 367 million to over 420 million last week alone in terms of pageviews. In the same week, unique views went from just over 8 million, to over 10 million. The pageviews on Twitter’s signup page alone went up over by over a million for the week.
