The six types of Twitter conversations

Have you ever wondered what a Twitter conversation looks like from 10,000 feet? A new report from the Pew Research Center, in association with the Social Media Research Foundation, provides an aerial view of the social media network. By analyzing many thousands of Twitter conversations, we identified six different conversational archetypes. Our infographic describes each type of conversation network and an explanation of how it is shaped by the topic being discussed and the people driving the conversation.

    fascinated by the The six types of Twitter conversations post.
    So true…I see diversity in whom wants me to follow back. If there’s a common thread /interest I’ll connect. Personally I’ve many interests but need to feel comfortable with whom I share.Folks add me to “groups ” without being asked…not always a choice I’d have made had I been asked.
    Again thank you for your insight into we the Twitter twittering…
