http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Internet, Social Software, Microblogging In a flurry of interesting (if you're into social networking) statistics, pie charts and graphs, RJMetrics has just published its latest Twitter data and user analysis. If social media or Twitter isn't your thing, here are the vital statistics: by the end of 2009, Twitter had 75 million user accounts -- of those, only 17% actually sent a tweet. The delicious stats go on! About 80% of Twitter users have tweeted less than ten times in total. 40% of all 75 million accounts have never tweeted. 25% have zero followers. Also, while the service is still growing (6.2 million new accounts in December), it seems its growth has peaked and is now beginning to fall: July saw 7.8 million new accounts. The growth graph still looks very impressive -- it's just a matter of the inherent quality of those new users. The report ends on a good note (for Twitter users at least): it doesn't look like its loyal users are even thinking about jumping ship. Basically, despite the 83% of users not tweeting on a monthly basis, the remaining 17% make up them in a big way -- they're highly-loyal to their followers and actually become more active over time.
