You're Probably More Popular On Twitter Than You'd Think

If popularity in life was measured by how many people follow you on Twitter, then maybe you’re doing really well.

The average Twitter account has just one follower.

Twitter is still a very small community.

Almost nobody on Twitter is somebody: the median Twitter account has a single follower. Among the much smaller subset of accounts that have posted in the last 30 days, the median account has just 61 followers. If you’ve got a thousand followers, you’re at the 96th percentile of active Twitter users.
