Twitter usage falls for second month

Is Twitter in trouble? Are users less enthralled with the service? Does this decline in usage indicate a trend? Certainly the numbers may not paint a true picture. "The number of Americans using Twitter dropped 8 percent in October from September, marking the second monthly decline for the social-networking site this year, according to research firm ComScore Inc." Twitter is being incorporated into a number of other sites, Facebook, Linked In, etc.; are they being counted, too? I am not a fan of Twitter but I didn't expect the Twitter train to fall off the tracks that fast. Still, I find myself less glued to a screen with Twitter updates. In the meantime, let's just keep watching the activity to see if this decline continues into month 3.
