Zarrella 1.0?

I was chatting with a friend on Facebook the other day and she encouraged me to post my gripe with Dan Zarrella.  I’m a fan of what he has done, but here it is, verbatim:
“I used to like Zarrella’s stuff but I feel as though he has not advanced at all beyond this ‘how to get more tweets’ technique- he was saying the same thing two years ago. Would like to see him come out with something new. He reminds me of a momentum trader (as opposed to a long term investor).”
