  1. Congrats! That’s a really good news!

  2. Great image there, really makes it easy to see the themes over the year. Congratulations on a landmark 100k followers, I’m sure it can grow even higher! 🙂

  3. Congrats, interesting infographic too. It shows the kind of tweets that get the most attention – often items related to ‘big’ news and good to see a charity related item there too!

  4. Congratulations to Cisco! That is a huge milestone especially with using the twitter social network. I currently work with a Cisco partner here in Phoenix, AZ and I am really debating on taking the extra steps by getting certified with the network. Keep up the good work and can’t wait to see you guys hit the 200k mark!

  5. Well congratulations on achieving this landmark. I am also one of your followers on twitter and I would like to say that I enjoyed your every single tweet.
    Thumbs UP!

  6. hey, i’m rares and i fallow you on twitter, i’ll search you on facebook too, congrats for your 100,000 followers. keep doing good job

  7. Congratulations on 100K followers.
    I’ve been following a lot of people from Cisco on Twitter but was not following @CiscoSystems until I found you here on your blog.
    I love the way Cisco has been using Social Media to build a community around the Business. The viral YouTube video was a great example.
    This giveaway is a great way to get highly targeted prospects for Cisco Systems products and create general marketplace awareness. It’s not always easy to measure the ROI from social media, yet with this promotion, if a new #followcisco Twitter follower becomes a loyal Cisco Systems client you will have measurable results.


  8. Awesome infographic – the imagemap to create links to each tweet was a brilliant idea. I’d love to see more interactive infographics.
