Twitter followers may not be as hard to obtain as originally thought. Sure you could be the most engaging guy or girl on Twitter or you could simply tweet a ton of messages.
The team at Beevolve conducted a round of social analytics reseacher and found that the more a users tweets the more followers they typically receive.
According to the study a Twitter user who sends out 1 to 1000 tweets will average 51 to 100 followers, while a user with more than 10,000 tweets will typically be followed by 1,001 to 5,000 people. If a user wants to become a super user they can tweet 15,000 tweets to obtain a follow between 100,001 and 1 million Twitter users.
The full report is titled An Exhaustive Study of Twitter Users Around the World and it examines users’ demographics, follower stats, gender preferences, favorite keywords and smartphone/app preferences.
The study also brought up other interesting facts, for example the average Twitter user is English speaking, 28-years-old and female with an average of 208 followers.
The study also revealed that the most commonly used words include “family,” “technology,” “entertainment,” “education” and “publishing.”
