  • 5% of Twitter users account for 75% of all activity
  • New York has the most Twitters users, followed by Los Angeles, Toronto,
    San Francisco and Boston; while Detroit was the fast-growing city over
    the first five months of 2009
  • More than 50% of all
    updates are published using tools, mobile and Web-based, other than
  • TweetDeck is the most popular non-Twitter.com tool with
    19.7% market share.
  • There are more women on Twitter (53%) than men (47%)

Worth a read and builds upon today's quote of the day:

"Chase Bank does not have any actual (Facebook) group or fan pages that help the customer
or provide any information. On the contrary, they have more 'I hate
Chase Bank' groups than any other popular bank, with hundreds of
members bashing the bank and its services
