Although Twitter is growing at an incredible rate, it's having trouble retaining users, according to online activities research firm Nielsen Online. The Twitter micro-blogging service only retains about 40 percent of users month-over-month, Nielsen Online Research Vice President David Martin claims in a company blog post, which could impact its long-term growth prospects. Is Twitter soon destined for the dustbin alongside other flashes in the online pan, or will its name recognition give it the power to stick around long enough to draw profits?
This is simply not true, letís just say I have physically seen the growth of twitter. I know for a fact that the certain company I know houses them and they are going out the roof on bandwidth and new servers, just this month they added 25+ servers due to demand and had to increase bandwidth also. Iím interested to know exactly how Nielsen was provided with this information.
I posted this on ďDavid MartinísĒ Blog and he refuses to approve the comment, while others after are being posted after mine. Iím sure they will approve it once itís out of the limelight.
It seems to me this is nothing more than riding the coattails of a major news maker (Twitter) to help make their new ďonlineĒ version of Nielsen get in the headlines.
