In any case, she shared some data from a recent survey from Hubspot on the state of the Twittersphere.
Of Twitter users:
- 79.79% failed to provide a homepage URL (My tip: use your LinkedIn URL if you have nothing else.)
- 75.86% of users have not entered a bio in their profile
- 68.68% have not specified a location
- 55.50% are not following anyone
- 54.88% have never tweeted
- 52.71% have no followers
Honestly, I was not all that surprised to see this data. While Twitter has grown exponentially in terms of people who have profiles, I think many join because they can’t turn on the TV without hearing someone talk about Twitter,Ã‚Â but they don’t know what to do once they get there. I often talk to certain Tweeps about the fact that Twitter fanatics and uber-users (Twuber users?) forget that this social media “stuff” isn’t second nature for everyone!
