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!).
