Know your tweeps
I started this blog to get a sense of what I actually care writing about. If the last few months are any indication of what strikes my fancy, it’s Twitter. I seem to mention the social networking site a lot. Like a lot, a lot. I’m not sure what the fascination is (maybe it’s everyone else’s fascination), but it could change just as well in the next week or two.
Either way, I came across this fantastic graphic recently and think it goes well with most of my rants on Twitter, particularly the use and usefulness of it.
That’s right, you saw it correctly: if Twitter was made of only 100 people, the population would consist of 20 dead people, 50 lazy people, 5 loud mouths, and 5 people who have 100 or more followers.
Twitter is not the super tool it’s reported to be. Yes, it’s used and it’s growing. However, it’s potential as an effective communication platform is far from being exploited by the average user.
But I don’t need to tell you—I’m sure one of your 5 loud mouth tweeps already did.
