The BBC has reported on a Harvard study of the use of Twitter (“Twitter hype punctured by study“, June 9, 2009). Here are some findings:
- “Just 10% of Twitter users generate more than 90% of the content”
- “more than half of all people using Twitter updated their page less than once every 74 days”
- “most people only ever “tweet” once during their lifetime”
I clearly tweet a little more than this. I have 74 updates and I last twittered today … about … Twitter.
