    Talking 40% of Tweets Are Pointless Babble

    With Twitter being such a hot trend right now, research firms have been anxious to study how people are using the social platform, and analyze trends in aggregate view.

    Their findings arenít all that favorable to those of us with lofty views of Twitter, because as it turns out, 40.55% of tweets are pointless babble.

    The Pear Analytics group took 2,000 tweets in English from the public timeline over a time span of two weeks, with 200 tweets captured each half-hour from 11am Ė 5pm CST daily. They then categorized tweets into six different types: news, spam, self-promotion, pointless babble, conversation, and pass-along value.
