The results are in, and Twitter.com still dominates the average Twitter user – 78% of people use this official, web-based version of Twitter to send out tweets, follow celebs, and get their breaking news. Check out this infographic for more cool Twitter use stats.
The Next Web commissioned this “How People Tweet” infographic, which takes a look at where people are sending tweets from.
The breakdown of how many people are using apps is interesting. Twitter’s official apps dwarf the others: the mobile, Twitter for Blackberry and Twitter for iPhone make up 30% of Twitter use. TweetDeck is a large player too, taking 6% of the pie (which, you will notice, is larger than 100% as people use multiple channels to send out tweets).
Surprisingly for some, Google Friend Connect is a significant Twitter powerhouse, with 2% of tweets coming from here. And TwitPic is also a Twitter powerhouse, making up 4% of all tweets.
