Twitter audience: smaller than reported

emarketer twitter estimatesTwitter reported 175 million accounts as of Sept, 2010, with monthly visitors to Twitter.com between 20 to 26 million per month in 2010.  These numbers are inflated due to duplicate accounts, international users, “Twitter quitters” and the fact that many visitors to Twitter.com are simply reading public tweets and not truly using the service.

emarketer predicts 20.6 million US adults will access a Twitter account at least monthly in 2011, +26.3% vs. last year. Double digit growth will continue through 2013, when nearly 28 million adults will be Twitter users.  Twitter captures about 10% of US female internet users and 7% of US male internet users Twitter was more popular among younger adults.

I’ve been quiet on Twitter for the last six months due to the time to stay on top of both Facebook, Twitter and other news sources.  I’ve chosen to stay active on Facebook due to the strong connections I have with friends on Facebook.  Who finds a way to stay active on both social networks?
