    Twitter's Most Active Users: Bots, Dogs, and Tila Tequila

    Twitter's Most Active Users: Bots, Dogs, and Tila Tequila has a funny title, but it also has lots of good statistics, like:

    • Among the top 5% of active Twitter users, 48% have more than 100 followers; only 6.3% of all Twitter users have more than 100 followers.
    • 3.3% of the most active users have more than 2000 followers compared to 0.29% among all Twitter users.
    • 88% of the top 5% post at least one new message every day - only 36% of all Twitter users do so.
    • Active users with more than 1000 followers tend to have "Internet marketer", "Internet marketing", "business marketing" and "entrepreneur" as keywords in their profiles.
    • The leading keywords for those with less than 1000 followers are "web designer", "graphic designer", "love", and "web developer."

    Imagine if Ashton Kutcher actually had a product to monitize?

    He'd be wealthy-er!

    Very interesting. Why not find a celebrity that does not have a Twitter, "create" one for them, get a loyal following of believers, and then spam them like crazy? Would that not constitute internet marketing? While blackhat at its best and a small bit of an ethical and moral dilemma, what is to stop one from following the status of a celebrity and forming a Twitter based on them, loosely hinting at the fact that it is official, but not explicitly stating it.

    Twitter will just confiscate your handle the moment the celebrity asks for it.

    From Twitter's Terms of Service:

    We reserve the right to reclaim usernames on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claim or trademark on those usernames.

    For example, a Twitter user named "Celtics" lost his name and got stuck with "bc_fan_news" instead.

    That reminds me to the fact of these accounts:
    DigitalPoint Forums (digitalpoint) on Twitter
    Shawn Hogan (shawnhogan) on Twitter

    None of them are from Shawn, though both should be from him It's fun that he doesn't seem to make a problem about it
