Who Uses Twitter? 15% Of Online Adults, 18-29 Year Olds, Smartphone Owners, Minorities [STUDY]
Why Twitter Is Bigger Than You Think In early June I’ll be presenting a track keynote at Blogworld NY that updates our Social Habit research series, a randomly sampled, representative look at how Americans 12+ use social media. I’ve written a lot in this space about Twitter, and the sizable gap between those Americans who use Twitter, and those who are familiar with the service. This year, that gap continues to be significant: 89% of Americans 12+ are familiar with Twitter, while 10% use the service. This is the third year we have observed a gap of this relative size.

Twitter turns six Six years may not be very long in human terms, but it’s been quite an enormous span for the thing we know and love as Twitter. When @jack first sketched out his notion in March 2006, no one could have predicted the trajectory of this new communication tool. Now it seems that there are as many ways to express yourself in 140 characters as there are people doing it.

C'était la surprise du jour : le prince saoudien Al-Walid bin Talala investi 300 millions de dollars dans Twitter et s'arroge ainsi quelques 3,75% du capital de la start-up américaine. Il devient ainsi un des principaux actionnaires individuels de la plateforme de microblogging. L'opération n'est pas très étonnante pour le prince Al-Walid, qui a précédemment investi dans des groupes médias américains dont News Corp., Walt Disney et Time Warner, et a des parts dans Apple. Après les Russes de Facebook, les Saoudiens débarquent chez Twitter

How Twitter Employees Send Their Tweets (Compared To You, Me And Everybody Else) Using Twitter’s API, Business Insider have tapped into the last few thousand tweets of the official Twitter employee list and determined the source – that is, the specific software client used to send those tweets – and crunched the numbers, and the results are pretty interesting. As you would expect, the Twitter staff member’s client of choice appears to be Twitter.com. Or, at least, ‘web’.
How much information do Twitters users disclose about themselves? In keeping with our efforts to offer insight to the fast-growing TwitterSphere, we decided it was time to see exactly how many details Twitter users are divulging. To put together our report, we examined over a billion tweets and compared to our 2009 study. Some highlights of our comparison of Twitter usage between 2009 and 2010 include: Users with 100+ friends have increased by three-fold to 21% since 2009. 22.5% of users accounted for about 90% of all activity. 80% users have made fewer than 500 tweets. Justin Bieber is one of top two-word phrases and top name in user's bios.
Twitter Finally Reveals Monetization Plan: Promoted Tweets | Dan Aside from a few small deals with Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft to integrate Twitter updates into search results, Twitter has held off announcing any kind of real monetization plan. The founders have said that they want to follow Google's path: create a product everyone wants to use, and then figure out a way to make money from it after. Today, the New York Times revealed exactly how Twitter plans to do that--at least, how they plan to start doing it. Twitter calls this first step Promoted Tweets. Advertisers, which at launch will include Best Buy, Virgin America, Bravo, and Starbucks, can buy keywords used by Twitterers in search.
NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- In the four years since Twitter launched, two questions have hung over the micro-blog service: Can it make money? If so, how? Twitter is expected an answer to both questions on Tuesday in the form of "promoted tweets," which will put ads on Twitter, first in search results and later in user feeds both on Twitter.com and the myriad third-party clients that access the service, such as TweetDeck, twhirl, TwitterBerry and Tweetie, the last of which was just acquired by Twitter last week.

Twitter To Musicians: Tell Your Own Story
It’s basically impossible for a journalist who relies on Twitter to find stories, stalk editors, rack up “whuffie” and beef with rap stars to be objective about the service. Fortunately, I don’t have to be, because four researchers from the Department of Computer Science at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have performed a multi-part analysis of Twitter. They conclude that it’s a surprisingly interconnected network and an effective way to filter quality information. Technology Review: Blogs: Guest Blog: Why Twitter Is the Future
