Hitwise: “Twitter Still Niche”

Filed as News on April 30, 2008 3:50 am

Heather Hopkins at Hitwise talks about Twitter in a recent blog post. She’s analyzed the Hitwise statistics and notes that Twitter still haven’t hit mainstream:

However, to put things into context, the site ranked #439 among Social Networks and Forums last week and #4309 among All Categories of websites. Twitter’s size is notoriously difficult to measure as there are so many access points (mobile phones in particular). However, the website traffic data does give some idea of the rate of growth and also reveals that the service still hasn’t reached mainstream adoption.

Statistics junkies should check out the post.
