State of the Edmonton Twittersphere – June 2010

Welcome to the sixth State of the Edmonton Twittersphere of 2010, my look at the intersection of Twitter and Edmonton, AB. You can see last month’s stats here.

Final Thoughts

First off, my apologies to those of you who have been waiting for a stats update! I’ll be getting caught up over the next week or two.

There was a slight increase in the number of users in June, and a slight decrease in the number of tweets posted. I think that decrease is due to two things: one less day than in May, and the large amount of downtime that Twitter experienced in June (it was their worst month since August 2009). I’ll have more on this in a future post, but June 20 was the second anniversary of the #yeg hashtag!
