RiotACT bigger than Twitter in Canberra!

riotact stats

CityNews have the stats out of Grey on Canberrans use of Twitter which apparently leads the nation:

CANBERRA is leading the country at using Twitter with about 38,000 people claiming to own a Twitter account, says Grey Canberra.

According to Grey’s recent social media monitor, about 13.7 per cent of Canberra residents use Twitter, compared to less than 10 per cent else where.

The report also showed, 73 per cent of the ACT’s Twitter users access their stream at least weekly while 18 per cent – more than 6,500 Canberra residents – use it daily.

So, 73% of 38,000 is 27,740 Canberrans casting their eye over a tiny fraction of the tweets in their stream.

Meanwhile according to Google we had 45,731 unique visitors in the last seven days.

Twitter in Canberra, it should be remembered, is dominated by the 6,000 denizens of Parliament House engaged in a vapid struggle for relevance and back scratching ego gratification. (although it should be noted all of Twitter can be characterised thusly, Parliament House is merely fertile ground)

But while we’re here twitter aficionados can follow us @The_RiotACT, or me @Griffiths_John (because I like back scratching ego gratification as much as anyone, please tell me I’m pretty!).

Facebookers can also like us.

What’s Your opinion?

@John – I get the Facebook updates as well. Sometimes I want to ‘share’ them, but there’s no ‘share’ button. Any suggestions if (or when) this might be possible?

I’ve got a share option when Riot Act updates pop into my newsfeed. I’ve even been known to share some! 🙂

So is this

a) a feather in the cap of RiotACT
b) a damning indictment on modern society
c) all of the above?

C.

Ctrl-c, Ctrl-v !

Beyond that sharing likes is up to facebook I’m afraid.

The biggest social media remains email and the biggest media in town could be seen to be the departmental email servers of the public service.

Twitter is pretty small beer in our referrers log.

But we’re glad to have you!

You must have more info than that, I come to The_RiotACT from the twitter feed.

So how many readers are hitting you from twitter? I actually think it was a pretty good move on your part, though I doubt if you had much choice.

ps. I am not one of the 6,000
