We have noticed that there are many different twitter personalities on this social medium. Nominally, your Tweet personality can be deduced from the number of followers, how many you follow and your updates. For instance, people with massive followings like celebrity Oprah Winfrey (1.6 Million) - yet she follows only 14 Tweeters - and has only made 51 updates. Not really a Twitter, as she does not provide content just attracts followers based on her celebrity status. Others like Guy kawasaki have almost the same number of follows and follower (130K) - and over 25,000 updates. This is one generous Tweeter - both in who he selects to follow and his updates.
And the scammers and spammers, who have massive followings and virtually no updates. You have to love seeing a Tweeter with thousands of followers and yet virtually no updates - and they are not a celebrity. These are the scammers of this online social world.
Most of us are in-between - a good balance of followers/following - with frequent enough updates.
Who are the most influential people on Twitter? Now there is an algorithmic means of calculating influence, thanks for the JCPR Twitter index. Using indepth factors, such as freqency of updates - the JCPR Index separates the popular from the truly influencial. Visit the technobabble site for details.
