Compete on Twitter Traffic Explosion

Compete has released on its blog some figures concerning Twitter usage in the US. Currently Twitter is attracting 1.2 million people per month. This figure is remarkable, because Twitter has currenlty a little bit over 1.6 million users with a public profile (as reported by Twitdir).

One of the main conclusions of Compete is that Twitter is a weekday event. On any typical weekday, Twitter is receiving more than twice the attention as a weekend day. Still according to Compete, a Twitter user is young, male and addicted to Twitter.

For more info take a look at the post at Compete.

Really useful site with some cracking statistics - even from outside Belgium!

I've just set up - partly to see if fans would be prepared to pay something for it. Would love you to stop by and let me know what you think.
