Report: 44% of Twitter Accounts Have Never Sent a Tweet
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
A report fromTwopcharts, a website that monitors Twitter account activity, states that about 44% of the 974 million existing Twitter accounts have never sent a tweet.
Twopcharts, which provided some data about tweeting activity last month, is unable to track when someone has logged into their account. It can only tell when the account retweets or tweets its own message.
Twitter said it has 241 million monthly active users the last three months of 2013. Twitter defines a monthly active user as an account that logs in at least once a month. By Twitter’s standards, a person does not have to tweet to be considered a monthly active user.
Yet it appears Twitter accounts in general don’t say much. This could be because they are quietly reading the tweets or haven’t come back to the service.
...or they're just fake accounts.
Also note that of the nearly 1 billion Twitter accounts created, over half have sent a tweet at some point.
Ryan Sarver says that 99% of blog readers have never blogged.
Josh Elman says that 99.99% of TV watchers have never worked on a TV show.
