Next up for a round of stat updates is Twitter. Twitter released their financials late last week to mixed reviews. User totals haven’t grown too significantly over the past 3 months, but I did update all of the tidbits that came out of the filings along with a bunch of backlogged stats that I was able to add in.

Here is a sampling of this round of Twitter stat updates and additions. For hundreds more, please visit the various Twitter stat posts listed at the bottom of this post.

We were recently quoted in an online magazine article; our picture, our name and our original tweet. In fact, it was a screen shot of what we had written on a fairly controversial topic!

Here are a few of the most recent stat updates and additions.

Following our recent post on the best times to post on social media, and being that this is a question we get frequently asked, we thought we would shed some light on the complex world of social media posting. With all the different sites and different word counts, knowing how often to post your content online can be tricky.

There is a fine line between appearing spammy and un-engaging and positioning yourself as a helpful expert in your field. Each platform has different ‘rules’ when it comes to the frequency of posts, and these have been developed and evolved by those who use the platforms regularly (that’s us all, as social media users). Each platform provider has developed their platform to allow us to post all manner of different types of content (we’ll be posting a series of blogs in the coming weeks and months on content for social, so keep an eye out). Here’s what we have found works best in terms of frequency of posting:
