Well this appears to be my new Saturday morning ritual. Pulling together data from Follow Friday for your viewing pleasure.
I want to thank Mashable and Micah for the post on Mashable yesterday featuring a screenshot of the justSignal Follow Friday Tracker.
Well lets get on with it, shall we?
There were a total of 43,481 Tweets (midnight to midnight Pacific Time).
Here is a chart showing the number of Tweets per hour (again time is Pacific).
The peak hour was 9-10am Pacific with 4,450 Tweets.
Perhaps my favorite fact from this week. 43,728 unique Twitter users were recommended.
Starting next week I’ll be providing week over week trending data… which should be really interesting. Since my data for last week is incomplete we really can not judge growth, but my best guess is that the Tweet volume about doubled.
For specifics about which users received how many recommendations and from who, head over to TopFollowFriday.
Second, Jeremiah Owyang thought (and I agreed) that Mashable got many of their Follow Friday recommendations via the Re-Tweet of the post Micah wrote. Turns out (near as I can tell based on my analysis of the data) – not so. There were only 65 Re-Tweets for Mashable which would have been counted for Follow Friday.
After the jump you can see those tweets for yourself.
There were a total of: 65 @Mashable Re-Tweets
