Twitter Census: Twitter Users by Friends Count

Added By Infochimps

Twitter follower data from millions of users! This is a free download of Twitter account follower data collected from March 2006 to March 2010. The Twitter data in this download comes from analysis on the full set of tweets during that time period, which is 40 million users, 1.6 billion tweets, and more than 1 billion relationships between users.

Infochimps uses a tool to “scrape” user profiles, extracting Twitter data. This data set exclusively consists of Twitter account follower data. Each Twitter account displays a number of followers that subscribe to follow tweets from other accounts. The number of friends displayed in this data set was taken from the last seen profile state for 40 million users as of March 2010.
