Washington DC Ranks Third in using Twitter

We, the Washingtonians are the third in the nation using Twitter according to a new report NetProspex. This tells me one thing and only one thing – The unemployment rate must still be high in the Nation’s Capital 🙂

DC ranks behind my other two favorite cities,  New York and San Francisco on the 25-city list, which takes into consideration the average number of Twitter accounts for employees of area companies, as well as tweets, number of followers, and number of users following. Overall, DC ranks as the 12th most “Social City,” based on factors such as the number of social connections and activity across Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. San Francisco, San Jose and New York topped the 50-city list, with Baltimore ranked No. 32.


Here is the complete report.
