Man jau patīk ņemšanās ar mediju rotaļlietu Twitter, kas tiek ķidāts vienā laidā. Vova iesūtīja saiti uz kādu ierakstu, kur tiek aprakstīts pētījums par Twitter aktivitātēm (PDF) Amerikā angļu valodā.
No šī pētījuma izriet, ka 40% no visiem ierakstiem ir bezjēdzīga muldēšana beztēmā. Precīzu tulkojumu nezinu, bet viņi to nosaukuši par pointless babble.
They then categorized them into 6 buckets:
News, Spam, Self-Promotion, Pointless Babble, Conversational and Pass-Along ValueAccording to their analysis, 40.55 percent of Tweets fell into the Pointless Babble bucket, 3.75 percent was Spam, and another 5.85 percent was Self Promotion — which means that almost exactly half (50.15 percent) of all Tweets are entirely without value to anyone.
But put another way, almost half of all Tweets are valuable to some extent. While that may not sound like a lot, it represents a higher proportion of valuable content than, say, television, or what Hollywood dishes out as entertainment.
Any sort of main stream news that you might ﬁnd on your national news stations such as CNN, Fox or others. This did not include tech news or social media news that you might ﬁnd on TechCrunch or Mashable.
These are the tweets such as “See how I got 3,000 followers in one
day” type of tweets.
These are typical corporate tweets about products, services, or “Twi4er only” promos.
These are the “I am eating a sandwich now” tweets.
These are tweets that go back and forth between folks, almost in an instant message fashion, as well as tweets that try to engage followers in conversation, such as questions or polls.
These are any tweets with an “RT” in it.
Now, if there were any tweets that could ﬁt into more than one category (which was rare), if it started with “@”, we deemed it as conversational, even if it was a news item or self‐promotion.
