Tweetmeme and Nielsen looking at social networking sites

Posted By on April 30, 2009

tweetmemeWhile adding a new Twitter feature call Tweetmeme (see retweet button at bottom of post), I stumbled across an interesting statistic compiled by Nielsen which concludes that 60% of Twitter Users Quit within the First Month, at least that is how Mashable writer Pete Cashmore sees it. I’m not sure how that stacks up to other social networking media avenues, but believe that Nielsen measures numbers in terms of access to the Twitter URL — their website —  they don’t take into account the number of non-website interfaces used to access and update Twitter (ie. TweetDeck, etc.)?
