TechCrunch has some figures on Twitter usage. It seems my own Twitterings at 16+ a day makes me a “heavy” user.
Total Users: 1+ million
Total Active Users: 200,000 per week
Total Twitter Messages: 3 million/day
What’s most interesting is the rabid Twitter usage by active users — they send an average of 15 Twitter message per day.
My Twitter stats show that my usage is spread across my waking hours right across the week. Yes, Twitter has become a core communication tool — though I’ve said that before [1, 2]. Maybe you should follow me.
