If Twitter Consisted of 100 People [Gorgeous Graphics]
August 17th, 2009 | by Pete Cashmore21 Comments
What if Twitter only had 100 users? How many would be chatty, how many lazy?
Based on the data from previous surveys ? InsideTwitter and the PearAnalytics study ? the InformationIsBeautiful blog has constructed these gorgeous graphics showing the Twitter () community represented as 100 people.
While beautiful, the data is being painted with broad strokes: those with 100 followers should overlap with the ?loud mouths?, while having more than 100 followers in a population of 100 is technically not possible: it is, of course, a compromise to make the data more accessible via visualization. The original data is also the subject of some debate. Enjoy with a discerning eye.

Ask, and you shall receive. Just the other day I was doing a bit of research regarding social media behavior. Leave it up to Pete Cashmore of Mashable fame to gather this information. Thanks Pete and all the contributors.
