How We Tweet: In a Car, From a Toilet.

A survey conducted by Crowd Science gives us some insight into the habits of Twitter users, compared to users of other social media sites.

While far from unexpected, some of the results of the survey are quite scary. For example, 11% of Twitter (Twitter) users admitted they’re accessing social media while driving, compared to 5% of other social media users. 29% of Twitter users claim they had accessed social media from a car at least once before.

Now, we know this is all common sense, folks, but it’s dangerous to text or tweet while driving; don’t do it. However cool the scenery is, however bored you are on that long drive, sending a tweet is not worth risking a crash.

Other interesting numbers from the survey indicate that most Twitter users are newcomers; not surprising due to Twitter’s tremendous growth. Also, around 40% of Twitter users access it on their mobile (which goes hand in hand with the in-car usage statistic); 46% check Twitter daily, but 24% of users have either stopped tweeting, or never tweeted to begin with!


Pictured on the infographic above is another interesting stat: a very large proportion of Twitter users access the service from a third party application, which is good news for rising third party clients and apps such as TweetDeck (TweetDeck) or Twitterific.

We’ll top it off with an interesting nugget of information for all you hardcore addicts; as it turns out, in the past 30 days, 17% of Twitter users (vs. 12% of non-Twitter social media users) have accessed social media from a washroom or toilet. Just make sure you wash your hands afterwards, folks.
