Is the LinkedIn Groups refurb another attempt to get onto the Twitter bandwagon?

I was just playing around with LinkedIn and noticed the changes to groups. This had passed me by.

I want to start getting into the LinkedIn group discussions a bit more. Whenever I tell people about social networks, LinkedIn always crops up. People like it. It seems solid, and professional and, unlike certain other networks, doesn’t suddenly fundamentally change from month to month.

One very interesting aspect of the group change is that members now have ‘followers’ which, it seems to me, is just another name for the connections you have on LinkedIn. So, is LinkedIn also now trying to get onto the Twitter bandwagon? Interesting times.

POST EDIT: You may be wondering why this post appeared at all. It’s because I’m playing with Posterous again. There should have been a video accompanying this post, but embedded video doesn’t seem to work between Posterous and WordPress. Sorry. Not my fault.

POST POST EDIT: The tags have been lost too. So while I can tag something to my heart’s content in Posterous, this information is lost in WordPress. This is not good.
