Report: 44% of Twitter users never sent out a tweet

Posted Apr 12, 2014

Twitter currently has 974 million registered users, but there is a report by Twopcharts that says around 44% of them never sent out a tweet. Many of these Twitter users are spectators of debates that take place on trending topics. 

Twopcharts reported to The Wall Street Journal that “30% of existing Twitter accounts have sent 1-10 tweets (and) only 13% of the accounts have written at least 100 tweets.”

Twitter said it has 241 million active users — which includes users that logged into the account at least once per month.

This statistic could be a concern for Twitter, but it is fairly common on social media. I know many people that have signed for accounts on Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook, but rarely use it.
