Twitter pace and power users
March 12th, 2010


The graph shows the burst of new Twitter accounts in 2009, and not so much in 2010. Mashable has a summary article, that includes the graph, of an new Barracuda Labs analysis of Twitter. Here are some key findings:

  • 21% are active users, having tweeted in the past 10 days
  • 26% have ten or more followers
  • 40% following 10 or more users
  • 73% tweeted less than ten minutes

Mashable adds:

In terms of tweets, the report estimates that 34% of Twitter users hadn’t tweeted even once, while a whopping 73% of Twitter’s users tweeted less than 10 times. That means nearly all of the tweets on the social network were coming from about one-fourth of the userbase. Power users dominate.
