I hate to break it to you, but most of us on Twitter aren’t original. Sure, we send 500 million tweets collectively a day. We can have millions of followers. We have 140 characters to say whatever we want whenever we want.
But according to a recent study done by the Pew Research Center, we only have six different types of conversations on Twitter.
Yep, just six — and none of them are @mentions, @replies, or DMs. So much for being special Twitter snowflakes.
But not being special has its advantages. With this data, you can better understand how your followers interact on Twitter and change up your strategy to better serve them. Feel free to read Pew Research Center’s full report here or get a quick yet comprehensive overview in the graphic below.
