94% Of All Twitter Employee Tweets Are Sent Via Official Twitter Products [STATS]

Last April, I took a look at the products that Twitter staff members were using to send their tweets, publishing the results on our sister blog, Social Times. Back then, some 85 percent of all tweets from Twitter employees came via official Twitter products, with 32 percent of those from Twitter.com.

Fast-forward almost a year later, and Twitter’s stranglehold on how its employees tweet has increased – a heady 94 percent of all staff tweets now come from official Twitter products.

Twitter Now Employs 833 People, Targets 1,000 By Year End [STATS]

Last month Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said that the company now employs “about 900 people”. I’ve been tracking Twitter’s staff count pretty closely for a few years now, and while it’s certainly true that Twitter’s hiring spree is on a major uptrend, with some serious growth in the past few weeks, either Costolo rounded up a little, or Twitter themselves are slow to update their own data, because their current roster looks to be set at 833 people.

Impressive, for sure – and by my calculations, Twitter should hire its 1000th employee before the end of this year.

Twitter Now Employs More Than 700 People

We’ve tracked Twitter’s staff roster pretty closely at AllTwitter over the past couple of years. Back in May 2009 the company’s employment count was just 69 (dude). By February of this year that number had jumped to almost 400, reached 500 in May and 600 in June, when the company hired more than 70 people in a month.

Things have slowed a little since then, and Twitter has let a few key people go, but the company is still picking up new bodies at a decent pace, and now boasts a staff of more than 700.

Trouble At Twitter? Key Players Leave After $800 Million Funding Round

Following a massive $800 million round of funding, Twitter board members Bijan Sabet and Fred Wilson, two of the company’s earliest investors, have both stepped down.

It’s the latest in a series of big employee changes at Twitter that have taken place since founder member Jack Dorsey resumed control of the company back in March.

Jack Dorsey Takes Firmer Hold Of His Twitter As Four Key Players Are Shown The Door

Couple of updates from the world of Twitter personnel – TechCrunch is reporting that four key product mangers have been let go: Kevin Cheng, Josh Elman, Anamitra Banerji and Jean-Paul Cozzatti.

It’s currently unclear if they walked or were fired. All have been with the company since way back.

Twitter isn’t saying much (“some people have left the company and we appreciate their contributions”), but there’s some speculation that they were pushed out by Jack Dorsey, as he looks to tidy up anyone still affiliated with the Evan Williams/Biz Stone/Jason Goldman regime, taking a firmer grip on the house that Jack built.

Twitter Hires 73 New People In A Month, Closes In On 600 Employees

In late May we reported on how Twitter was on the verge of hiring its 500th employee, which meant that in just two years the company had expanded significantly from its May 2009 roster of 69 members of staff.

As of today that total is up to 572. That’s right – Twitter has recruited 73 new people in just one month.

Twitter Employees Use Lists… But Barely [INFOGRAPHIC]

Although I think lists are among the most (potentially) powerful feature of Twitter, it seems like its own employees aren’t too keen on them. A look at how Twitter’s employees use lists reveals some pretty interesting stats. For instance, just under half of their 500+ employees (44.09 percent) have never created their own Twitter list.

Twitter About To Hit 500 Employees (And 5% Of Them Still Have The Default Avatar)

In February I wrote about Twitter’s escalating employee count, which was closing in on 400 members of staff. Way back in May 2009 – when Twitter was black and white and mostly made out of wood – that number was just 69 (dude).

Now, just three and a bit months later, Twitter’s roster has jumped by over 25%, and is about to hit 500.
