As a source of Hub traffic, what's your experience of traffic?
In recent days I've been taking a look at Twitter Analytics (Duh... I never noticed the menu item for it before!). Anyway I've noticed that the click through rate is extremely low, but I also discovered that potential readers seem to get confused and click on hash tags instead of the intended link. I wish there was some way of highlighting links or alternatively an option during composition of a tweet to hyperlink the attached photo.
Most twitter users are quite familiar with how it works, maybe you just use interesting looking hashtags?
I think click through is good if you have engaged followers and it matches their interests. 'Follow back' and promotional handles, not so much.
Personally I find Twitter incredibly useful and I get more traffic from Twitter than I do from any other social network. However, the majority of my traffic does come from Google (i.e. SEO) and from within Hubpages.
I seem to get lots of impressions. But as for link clicks, forget it. And many of those titles are downright provocative, but still nary a click to be found.
I use Twitter here some, but mostly on my blog. I also use it via Hootsuite which allows me to schedule Tweets in advance. I do get quite a few views and from those views the stats show some are clicking on my Google Adsense ads.
I bought a book on Twitter and I think to make your followers happy you need to be consistent with your posts. I think a daily update would be good but I haven't been that ambitious yet.

I have used RSS feeds, linkedin, pings and craigslist to promote my hubs. The only item that seems to deliver results for me is Twitter. What are your thoughts and experiences?

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you...
