It flew out with a bang—Twitter was everywhere—celebrities, athletes, and global companies were sending tweets across the Web. So are more people than ever sending tweets? Or are people falling off the Twitter bandwagon and deleting their twitter accounts like Miley Cyrus, Courtney Love, and Chris Brown.
According to ComScore’s assessment of Twitter visitors, “The site peaked with about 21.2 million visitors in July 2009 and dipped to 19.9 million in December.”
However some people are saying that Twitter users are more engaged with Twitter now then they were previously. Twitters users are following more feeds, have gained more followers, and are writing more tweets according to Web analyst HubSpot.
So where did the 1.3 million Twitter users go according to ComScore’s assessment? Perhaps they fluttered over to Facebook where users can continually update their status (similar to Twitter) post photos and videos, and chat live with friends. ComSore reported during the same time that Twitter lost users Facebook grew from about 250 million users to more than 350 million.
What is your assessment—will you still be sending and following tweets six months from now?
