Twitter vs. Youtube ?

This should set a few people off :-)

I'm finding something interesting. In the new Social Networking box we have now under people's avatars I've realized the very first thing I click on is their YouTube link.

Not their Twitter link. In fact, I haven't clicked on a Twitter link yet. But I've clicked on every youtube link I've seen so far.

I'm not really going anywhere with this, just thought it was interesting..and mildly curious what icon would actually win on clicks overall...

    Interesting!...

    For me, it would probably depend on who the warrior actually was.

    (You never know, I might click on both!)

    I've yet to set myself up on YouTube, but it's on the to-do list!

    How about creating a poll Allen, even if it's just for a touch of fun?!

    Thanks

      I think a poll might give bad results here. Most seemed to be into twitter. In a general population I'm fairly certain, no 100% certain, youtube would win..

        Think it comes down to what method is gonna bring in most traffic for your time? Personally, i get more traffic from my youtube account than my twitter account. Both accounts are pretty new but youtube is a better medium for me to get traffic from, im a fan of twitter but it doesnt stand up to youtube.

        Youtube is much more entertaining than twitter, therefore, i would click on a youtube link before a twitter link.

    Honestly even though I use Twitter to make money, I'd probably check out their Youtube just as often if not more - Youtube is entertainment, if it's done right. Twitter is business.

    The social networking box is new, isn't it? Youtube, if I felt I could spare the time for yet another diversion. I've never been that drawn by Twitter (and I can hear the cries of 'oddball!' because of it already )

    Youtube is my most visited site. I have a profile there setup too. So I think the answer is obvious

    I haven't even created a Twitter profile for myself. Guess it is time to do one now!

    You tube most of the time. I think folks like to watch and not read

    I definitely get more traffic from YouTube, but then I spend more time with it, and I'm still pretty new to Twitter.

    I think that YouTube is more popular with the general public, so it's probably more likely to bring in more traffic in general, but I don't meant to imply that I think Twitter is a slouch.
