We were reading this very interesting recent article on new trends in social media by Brian Solis (worth checking out--read it here on his blog
) when we noticed this neat word cloud of words people use the most on their Twitter profiles. Solis interprets the chart as evidence that Tweeterers are a wholesome crowd interested in "Love. Life. World. Friends. Family." But we dug a little deeper into the chart and noticed a few neat things, like the fact that on Twitter, Justin Bieber is definitely bigger that Jesus
. Take a look:
Notice that? BIEBER is way bigger than tiny Jesus down there!
Other interesting things on the chart:
- Bieber (and Justin) is the only musician on it.
- Justin Bieber and Jesus are the only proper names on the chart.
- Marketing is bigger than Designers and Design. They are both bigger than Artist.
- DJ is way bigger than musician
So, who are these Twitterers: a bunch of Bieber-worshipping designers and DJs who love marketing.
It's a strange world out on the Internet.
