In recent email to “Twitter-ers” (I guess Biz Stone can’t say twits or twitheads or just plain old twitterers because oh right, that is a real word), they shared some stats that surprised me:
…people who have 10 followers and are following about 10 people represent 50% of all Twitter-ers. If you have more than 80 followers and you’re following more than 70 people, then you are in the Twitter minority at about 10%.
I thought the folks who had hundreds or thousands of followers, the folks on (or trying to get on) the top 100 on Tweeterboard, are the folks who make up the minority.
Though apparently, I just barely qualify for geeky minority status.
