Earlier this month Pear Analytics, a research company, published a report where they took 2,000 tweets from the public timeline (in English and in the US) over a 2-week period and put them into six different categories. Two days later Information is Beautiful published a great visualization of that data. It was too good not to publish on Cliqology.
The most interesting fact for me is the number of active users vs. the content production ratio, (“5 loud mouths creating 75% of the content) on Twitter. This is roughly the same ratio of users to content production that we have seen with many of the other blogging and self publication platforms.
