Twitter: not as popular as you think?

Posted by drewdahms on August 14, 2009

twitter-logo-002Over the past few months, Twitter has experienced explosive growth, attracting celebrity users such as Oprah, and a growing mountain of media and blog coverage. Sysomos Inc., one of the world’s leading social media analytics companies, conducted an extensive study to document Twitter’s growth and how people are using it.

Alex Cheng and Mark Evans of Sysomos Inc. put together this fascinating demographic survey on how much (or how little) Twitter is really being used by the masses.  It may give you a different perspective on Twitter as an effective wide reaching social media tool for marketing your business or brand.

After analyzing information disclosed on 11.5 million Twitters accounts, they discovered that:

  • 5% of Twitter users account for 75% of all activity
  • 72.5% of all users joining during the first five months of 2009
  • 85.3% of all Twitter users post less than one update/day
  • 21% of users have never posted a Tweet
  • 93.6% of users have less than 100 followers, while 92.4% follow less than 100 people

Read the full survey results on their blog.
