Twitter is one of the largest social networks, it doesn’t have a problem getting people to sign up. It ranks just behind Facebook. It is great for real-time information. However you might be surprised by how many Twitter accounts never actually tweet.
A report from Twopcharts suggests that nearly 44 percent of the 974 million accounts have never sent a single tweet. No one has heard a tweet out of them. Twopcharts monitors activity on Twitter accounts. We don’t know if those users even log into their accounts. Some of them may just be using Twitter to follow their favorite celebrities, news, or personalities and don’t have anything to say.
Twopcharts can only tell when an account retweets or sends out its own tweet, it can’t account for users who log in and read tweets all day long, but keep silent. So that 44 percent of Twitter’s population may not be just a void. In the last three months of last year Twitter had 241 million monthly active users. Twitter’s defines an active user as one who logs into the service at least once a month. They don’t have to tweet to be active. Twopcharts also says that only 30 percent of existing accounts have sent 1-10 tweets and only 13 percent have posted at least 100 tweets.
Twitter would do well to come up with ways to get that 44 percent tweeting.
