FAVE STATS: How the top tweeters tweet (most use Twitter.com)

Published by:

Want to tweet like your favorite tweeters? If you’re using the homebase of Twitter.com, then you’re probably spot on. Check out these 54 top tweeters (majority in the top 60 most followed on Twitter, plus a few of my favorites) and their Twitter client(s) of choice. Before you look at the list, here are a few findings from the hours I spent pouring over their Twitter feeds:

  • 52% of top tweeters used more than one Twitter client to send out tweets [TWEET THIS]
  • 18% of top tweeters used ONLY Twitter.com to tweet [TWEET THIS]
  • 39% of top tweeters use Twitter.com in addition to at least one additional Twitter client to tweet [TWEET THIS]
  • FUN FACT: Snoop Dogg tweets from more Twitter clients than any of his top tweeter celebrity counterparts (mentioned in this post). [TWEET THIS]
  • FUN FACT: Out of 54 top tweeters, a combination of 37 different Twitter clients were used. [TWEET THIS]
  • The top 5 Twitter clients for these top tweeters are: 1. Twitter.com; 2. Twitter for iPhone; 3. Their own site; 4. Ubersocial for Blackberry; 5. A 4-way tie between Hootsuite, Twitter for Mac, Twitter fro Blackberry and Tweetdeck. [TWEET THIS]
  • Nicki Minaj uses an iPhone and a Blackberry to tweet. [TWEET THIS]
  • The folks who run the @facebook account use Twitter.com and direct from Facebook to tweet. [TWEET THIS]

I know you can hardly contain yourself. You’re almost there…

Holy Kaw! Guy Kawasaki and friends got it right. In an age of information overload, make it easy for people to find and filter the best content. Enter Alltop. In their own words…

You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. We’ve subscribed to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.” To be clear, Alltop pages are starting points—they are not destinations per se. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance your online reading by displaying stories from sources that you’re already visiting plus helping you discover sources that you didn’t know existed.

I use the site a few ways:

  1. Scan the headlines of industry terms important to me: journalism, social media, technology, etc… (Just type in your keyword [dot] alltop [dot] com)
  2. Create my own “headline hub” –> http://my.alltop.com/prsarahevans
  3. Check out my favorite bloggers, like Chris Brogan and Copyblogger

This is part of my morning quadrant two activities. You know, after I change dirty diapers and get the spit up off of my t shirt.

Have a blog you think would be a great fit for Alltop? Create an account and submit your information.
