After some prodding from @lacouvee in Victoria, I decided to put together some statistics on the Twitter scene there. I didn’t really know what to expect in terms of the data, but when going through the stats I was struck by how similar the results are to Edmonton in January of last year. Maybe Victoria is poised for lots of Twitter growth!
Here are the stats for January 2010:
# of local users: 1246
# of tweets by local users: 48817
# of tweets by local users containing #yyj: 5826 (11.9%)
# of tweets by local users that were replies: 15655 (32.0%)
# of tweets by local users containing links: 15152 (31.0%)
# of tweets by local users that were retweets: 4594 (9.4%)
# of tweets by local users that were twooshes: 2086 (4.3%)
And here are the top ten most followed users:
