Interesting Statistics

Posted by terrepruitt on June 17, 2019

So recently I was looking up things about Twitter and I came across some statistics and things I thought were interesting. First from Hootsuite’s 28 Twitter Statistics All Marketers Need to Know in 2019:

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit, City of San Jose Exercise Classes, Cambrian Yoga & Cardio Dance, CYCD–500 million tweets are sent each day
–The most popular emoji on Twitter in 2018 was the laugh-cry face
–326 million people use Twitter every month
–80% of Twitter’s users aren’t American
–40% of users say they’ve made a purchase because of an influencer’s tweet
–The best time to tweet is 3 p.m. on weekdays
–Tweets with a GIF get 55% more engagement
–93% of Twitter videos are viewed on mobile

I need to remember that 3 pm on weekdays is the best time to tweet. Also I need to remember the GIF stat, I don’t like them so I have never tweeted one.

And Market.us has a lot of information in Twitter Statistics and Facts 2019 including these tidbits that interested me:

–In 2019, in a minute on the Internet, 87,500 individuals are on Twitter.
–#barcamp: The first hashtag ever used on Twitter.
–125M: Average number of hashtags Tweeted per day.
–#TheWalkingDead: Most Tweeted about TV hashtag of all time.
–Total of 1.3 billion accounts have been created
–80% of active users access the site via mobile.
–Katy Perry has the most followers at over 106m, followed by Justin Bieber and then Barack Obama
–Taylor Swift and Liam Payne are the most influential women and men on Twitter
–83% of the world’s leaders are on Twitter.
–During the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, 618,725 tweets were sent in a single minute.
–92% of companies Tweet more than once a day, 42% Tweet 1–5 times a day, and 19% Tweet 6–10 times a day

I found these things interesting. You may want to know more about Twitter’s history and finances and so do look at the articles.

Having noticed a loss of followers I had found some information on the internet stating that Twitter was deactivating and deleting a lot of accounts. They were going after fake accounts and underage people having accounts, also some that were inactive. I recently had a “suggested follow” of an account that hadn’t tweeted since 2016. I think suggested follows are annoying in the first place and that really confirmed my thoughts.

I liked Twitter better when it was just a stream of tweets, but now the stream is broken up by the suggested follows, as I already mentioned, and promoted tweets.

Well, as I said, I was looking up some information and came across this stuff that I found interesting. I always like to share stuff that interests me. I like to see if it interests anyone else.

Are you on Twitter? Do you tweet? What tidbit do you find most interesting from the ones above?

    I find I’m tweeting less than I used to. Maybe just once a week though I do « like » a lot of tweets.

    • Yeah, I tweet less, too. I used to talk to people, but I don’t get that any more. No connection. I don’t see a lot of people I follow. I don’t know how or why I get “stuck” seeing the same people over and over. It is like Facebook.
