How many times do you tweet each day? Ten? Fifty? More than a hundred?
Whatever your number, I guarantee it will be chump change in comparison compared to Twitter’s most prolific user, who, at the time of writing, has written and sent more than 37 million tweets since first joining the micro-blogging social network on August 5, 2009.
Which, when you break it down, works out to a ridiculous 22,152 tweets per day.
Football – or soccer if you’re in North America – has some 3.5 billion fans across the globe, making it far and away the most popular sport in the world.
That popularity has quickly bled into social media. Indeed, football’s adage that it’s “played by millions, and watched by billions” could equally be applied to Twitter, with the top clubs (and athletes) each boasting millions of fans. But which teams are faring best?
Did you watch “Two Swords”, the first episode of the much-anticipated season 4 of Game Of Thrones?
You’re certainly not alone. Screened as a simulcast across both the U.S. and UK, the show broke the viewership record for Thrones with more than 8 million tuning in. And that buzz quickly moved to Twitter and Facebook.
@YouTube remains the top, most-followed brand on Twitter, with its more than 40 million followers placing it well ahead of all other brands, including the official @Twitter profile.
Katy Perry, who became the first Twitter user to reach 50 million followers in January of this year, maintains her position as Twitter’s most-followed profile, with a lead now well in excess of one million followers over second-placed (and former number one) Justin Bieber.
