The More Time You Spend on Twitter [CHART]

time vs. twitter

Have you noticed your followers on Twitter continue to increase yet engagement hasn’t so much? That’s probably because 90% of your followers aren’t actually people but rather computerized robots. It has almost transgressed into a room full of machines simultaneously shouting out article links and inspirational quotes; 140 characters at a time. And the longer you’re logged into the site, the more likely you’re going to run into Justin Bieber’s feelings at the given moment than any real news. Half the tweets you read are also stuffed with dozens of @mentions or #hashtags, it becomes hard to make sense of any it. Sure you can use some social media tools to try and sort out the riffraff, but as the clock continues to wind your Twitter stream becomes infiltrated with a growing amount of dribble from even once trusted sources of news. What really happens as time goes by on Twitter?
