Twitter trends around WordCamp SF

Considering the amount of tweeting, retweeting and replying to tweets the @VoceNation crew did at WordCamp SF earlier this month it’s interesting to read this analysis by social networking company Pathable of the amounts and different types of Twitter updates posted at or around the event.

Most of the related content, according to Pathable, is more about people and their experience at the event or its sessions. About a third run along these lines, with another third being information about what was going on that might be useful or interesting to those who weren’t actually in attendance.

In all there were 797 individual tweets about WordCamp SF from 258 people but just 20 people account for half of that total number. That’s a fascinating statistic showing that is actually a bit surprising considering what I would have assumed about the attendees, which was that they were all on Twitter hashtagging away.
