One per cent of Twitter accounts do most of the Twittering

Written by Nick Farell

The rest watch
New research from Yahoo suggests that most Twitter accounts are not used.

The figures show that found that only 20,000 people are pretty much responsible for half of all tweets. This is less than one percent which suggests most people sign up and don't say anything.

The study only analysed a sample of 260 million tweets. Half of those tweets came from “elite” users, consisting of “media, celebrities, organizations and bloggers.”

There are a few ordinary users who don't have a lot of followers but seem to spend their time following famous people.  Apparently famous people like to follow famous people, and writers follow other writers.

I think Twitter has become a tool for following people such as musicians, actors or any other famous proffesion, I don't use it for social communication with friends, that's what Facebook's for

I was actually surprised by these findings. It's kind of pathetic if you think about it.
