Discussions on Twitter seem to never stop. However, a small minority of users are responsible for the majority of tweets. According to a study that looked at discussions on the social network in the United States, just 25% of users account for most tweets.

According to a Pew Research study, conducted from June 12 to September 12, 2021, 97% of messages on Twitter are posted by just 25% of users. The posting numbers of this very active minority on the platform demonstrates the influence that some users can have on social networks, as also pointed out by Facebook in March 2021.
