Global Dominance

(Inspired by this.)

Birmingham, AL (NOPRWEB) December 2, 2008 — What’s better than soaring to the top of a popular social networking site? How about being at the very top of the entire planet? That’s the envious position The Personal Brander, Ike Pigott, found himself in last month when he entered the Twitter elite. Proving just how powerful his Internet marketing promotional strategies are, Pigott not only became a top Birmingham Twitterer, but has now expanded his territory where he currently outranks all members of the site on Planet Earth. Internet marketers who would like to follow The Personal Brander’s tweets and improve their own promotional efforts can do so online at

According to Nielson Online, Twitter is the fastest growing social networking site, achieving a 343% growth rate between September 2007 and September 2008. For obvious reasons, landing in the top tier of this social media giant could boost an Internet marketer’s career, but accomplishing it for all of Planet Earth is an almost guaranteed catapult into the stratosphere. Or beyond, into the solar system. Well, that’s exactly what Ike Pigott has just done.

As of press time, he sat firmly in the number one slot among all Planet Earth Twitterers. That position places him handily ahead of the big competition: Home Depot, Matt Bacak, and Stephen Colbert. Consistently ranking in his planet’s top ten, Pigott also ranks 304 out of 549,000 Twitterers with accounts.

Wikipedia describes Twitter as a “social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send and read other users’ updates (a.k.a. “tweets”), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. The service touts itself as a way to communicate and stay connected with others through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing? By one measure, Twitter had well over five million visitors in September 2008. That figure represents a fivefold increase in just one month and equates to three out of every 1,000 Internet users.

In addition to his prowess over Twitter, Pigott is proud to have previously held the number 1 ranking on Technorati.

“Anyone can call their promotional abilities ‘powerful’ but I actually prove that mine are,” says Ike Pigott of his most recent accomplishment. “I consistently rank in the top 500 Twitterers on the Net. If you were an Internet marketer who wanted to improve your promotional game, who would you trust? Someone who is all talk and no action, or someone who actually walks the talk?”
