Twitter is @5 today – apparently lawyers love it but not the Welsh
With Twitter (or microblogging as it used to be called) celebrating its fifth anniversary today (21st March) here are some random statistics courtesy Virgin Media Business…
• Currently 35% of organisations in the UK are using social networking sites as part of their external communications, with one in ten firms now tweeting regularly.
• A poll of 5000 UK businesses found that Twitter is most popular with legal organisations, with 12% regularly using the social network for business purposes. (Really? – Ed)
• Twitter is the most popular social networking site for businesses in the North West, Northern Ireland and the North East, where it is used by 12% of all companies. Welsh firms are least likely to use Twitter, with just 7% currently signed up to the service.
