The Correlation of Tweets to Twitter Followers
January 2, 2009 16 Comments
Fascinating. Simple relationship:
more tweets = more followers
Correlation coefficient (on only 5 observation points) of 0.99.
DISCLAIMER: The results here are for example only, and may not represent your actual mileage. If you only tweet simple grunts or what you’re eating for lunch, you’re not likely to experience an increase in followers. It helps if you’ve got another place where you’re sharing your thoughts, such as a blog, or you’re already well-known elsewhere, such as being a CEO or an NBA player. And it probably helps if your tweets are on topics that a lot of other Twitterers are interested in. Finally, you must give to get, so follow and engage others you find interesting.
