Frequent Twitter Users More Likely to Buy

A new report from ExactTarget titled “Subscribers, Fans, and Followers” found that daily Twitter users who follow a brand are more than twice as likely to purchase than Facebook users  who “like” that brand.  A third of Twitter followers also said they were more likely to make a recommendation after following a brand, versus 21 percent of Facebook fans and 24 percent of email subscribers.

Still, eMarketer notes that the universe of Twitter users is still a fraction (three percent of U.S. Web users) of the 500 million Facebook users.
