Rate of growth slows for newspaper Twitter accounts

October 5, 2009 4 Comments

National UK newspapers had 1,665,202 followers of their Twitter accounts at the start of October - an increase of 193,266 on September 1st (when they had 1,471,936).

The rate of growth has slowed, however. This is a monthly increase of 13.1%, compared with 17% from August 1 to September 1, and also from July 1 to August 1.

What's more, 151,555 of the increase (or 78% of the total) is down to just one account - that of @guardiantech (which owes its popularity to its place on the Twitter Suggested User List). Indeed, of the 131 accounts I'm tracking, 51 have fewer followers than me! You can see the full table here, or below.
