50% of Tweets Consumed Come From Only 0.05% of Twitter Users [STUDY].

Of the 260 million tweets with URLs that the study’s authors analyzed, nearly 50% of the tweets consumed were created by what they called “elite” users who fall into four categories: media, celebrities, organizations and bloggers. “Ordinary” users encompass everyone else.

i can’t help but laugh at the “elite” status bloggers get.  Obviously there are elite bloggers/media sources… but if we’re seeing twitter as more of an “information hub” (which i believe is pretty spot on), anyone with information to share is going to share it on twitter.  When I publish this blog it is going to automatically publish to twitter (and facebook).  I put out a lot of information maybe because I just have more to share than someone going through their day not thinking about much outside of their experiences.

make no mistake, the revolution will be tweeted!
