Are You an Average Twitter User?

Yeah, we’re talking numbers. Charles Arthur at guardian.co.uk reports:

  • the average user has 126 followers;

  • only 20% of its traffic comes through the Twitter website; the other 80% (logically) comes from third-party programs on smartphones or computers. So if you’re looking at Twitter stats on your website, you’re probably underestimating that source of traffic by a factor of five;

  • an early peak test of the service came during President Obama’s inauguration in January, when more than 300 tweets per second were being added to the message queue.

  • FBLA’s feed is (ahem) above average. Follow us at @fishbowlla or follow your fav editors at @tinadupuy and @pandorayoung
