8 Insights on How the Top 100 Brands Use Twitter in 2014 - Study

8 Insights on How the Top 100 Brands Use Twitter in 2014 - Study | The World of Tweets | Scoop.it
How you use Twitter and Facebook should be different as they are not the same beast. Here are some insights on how the top 100 brands use Twitter in 2014
Shirley A Williams's insight:

As always Jeff Bullas posts provides insight on how Twiiter is used and performing today. Biggest advise is not to treat Twitter like face book; it is a stream and not an inbox

 

The 8 areas include:

 

1. Brand adoption

70% of the top 100 brands have 100K followers-48% increase from 2013

 

2. Posting frequency

A tweet every 15minutes receives higher engagement than every 30mins. More brands are tweeting more frequently.

 

3.Tweeting habits

@replies to users re up from 61 to 70%

 

4. Engagement

Engagement with band tweets is up by 83% since 2013

 

5. The rise of visual tweets.

Photos made up 45% sent Tweets but accounted for 51% of all engagement.

 

6. The top link types.

43.75% of all tweets contain a link with Pic.twitter.com links were the most popular .

 

7.Hashtag use is exploding.

An increase of nearly 82% since 2013.

Hashtags increase user engagement by 24% over a tweet with no hashtags. Rule of thumb is around 2-3 hashtags per tweet.

 

8. The top industries using Twitter

Twitter has been working hard over the last year or two on making mass media integrate and work better with social media. That is why the rise of hashtags and twitter handles on TV shows and media companies.

 

I am always intrigued by those who have a significant Twitter phobia and seeing hashtags exploding over the television screen. I often wonder the internal response. #8 is so visible today.

 

Great points to consider. Excellent read.

7 Free Tools to Find Twitter Influencers Who Interact with You

7 Free Tools to Find Twitter Influencers Who Interact with You | The World of Tweets | Scoop.it

Twitter was the first social media network that made influencers more reachable. It has never been easier to pitch to someone who can make an impact (and thus become influential as well). Knowing who influences your potential customers and winning their trust is gold… yet it’s not easy.

The first step in influencer marketing is identifying those influential people who are already interacting with you: Those are your most effective targets because you have already managed to get their attention.

Below are 7 free tools I am using to interact with influencers who know me or are familiar with what I do.
