Bent out of shape – part 2

My reader has been active. He has sent any number of interesting Twitter analytics pieces to illuminate the distribution curve question. This one is of particular interest. http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/10/05/twitter-data-analysis-an-investors-perspective/

Among the more revealing stats is that only 1 in 4 registered users tweets in any given month and that 75% of users have tweeted fewer than 1o times and that substantially less than 5% of users have more than 100 users.

Interesting.

  1. I would venture that the incidence of tweets read by followers that are an important part of the “follower pool” (and not just a follower who is doing so for the sake of numbers) is tiny. Why? Because a tweet is time sensitive and if your follower happens not to be in Twitterland when you tweet, you can assume it’s a lost tweet for the most part.
