Increasing the number of your subscribers is (or should be!) one of any blogger's goal. You write to be hopefully read, and your subscribers are people you are sure do read you. Now, what about increasing effortlessly your loyal readership by (at least) 20%?
Twitter is a fun little tool I've never really found any need for. I actually use it in various ways, like receiving twice a day an SMS with current prices of a few stocks I follow, but this is more of a gadget to impress my tech-unsavvy friends than something I need.
A little more than one year ago, I started to send my blog updates to my Twitter account as another "fun use of no need", and quickly literally forgot about it. A little more than one month ago, I remembered about it, and made a short announcement that this blog updates were twittered. As a result, my Twitter account just got past 100 followers (wooweee!) which can be considered as a bonus over my regular RSS readers.
So, basically my point is: even if you don't use Twitter yourself, don't neglect people who do. There are a lot of easy ways to broadcast your blog posts through Twitter: Twitterfeed, a free service I've been using for more than a year now, and of course a variety of WordPress Plugins.
Easy + potentially fun + obviously efficient + can do no harm anyway = do it!
