Twitter Madness! – a unique case-study (Part 2)

In continuation of my “field study” – which is mentioned in part 1 of this post –  here are some more unexpected findings:

  1. In total I gained 105 new followers (15% extra followers)
  2. I lost only 15 followers (only 2% loss)
  3. 12 (10%) of the new followers followed me after I had stopped tweeting (my conclusion is they are coming from RTs by other tweeps)
in further analyzing my new followers I noticed the following:
  1. 59 (over 50%) of my new followers had a Klout score of 40 or more – 27 of which were above 50
  2. 30 of my new followers had a Klout score between 20 & 39
  3. 22 of my new followers had more than 10,000 followers  themselves (9 were above 20,000)
  4. 39 of my new followers had followers between 1000 & 9999
The below chart shows my new followers by the number of followers they have:

This next chart shows the distribution of my new followers according to their Klout score, apparently they are mostly ‘good value” tweeps, and not 3rd rate as some may expect.
