I founded and edit the blog, http://Twittercism.com. I share a lot of content on Twitter and try to position myself right on the edge of the information curve.
... as anyone who joined just because of the World Cup likely won't stay active. Still, must have made SOME difference. [2/2]
Interesting that @dickc says World Cup drove engagement, not new users. That's the ideal for Twitter, of course ... [1/2]

I think anything less than 268m after the success of the World Cup would be an under-perform for Twitter. Keep 'em crossed!
... we must remember that top accounts have lots of passive/fake/abandoned followers, so it likely all evens out! (2/2)
Which means the top users on Twitter are out-growing the platform itself by more than four-to-one. However... (1/2)
What's interesting here is Twitter had an estimated 10-12m active users in 2009, 255m Q1 2014. That's 25X growth in 5 years.
#Twitter's top 10 users today. See last tweet - 113X growth in 5 years for most-followed users. https://twitter.com/Sheamus...
