Participation differences: tweeting vs. hashtag discussion


There are stark differences in participation between the May 14 tweeting and general discussions on the hashtag:

  • over 50% of the participants in the tweeting were women, and over 50% of the tweets came from women.
  • at least 80% of the most frequent tweeters on the #p2 hashtag are male; 80% or more of the tweets come from men
  • none of the most frequent participants on the hashtag attended the tweeting

* wthashtag's order seems to be roughly accurate although the number of tweets they report is far higher than can be found by Twitter search. so take it with a grain of salt. still, it's a useful and easy data point.


here's a query for the tweets from the eight most frequent and tweets involving the 10 most frequent

Most frequent tweeters, May 4-10

Methodology

  • unique contributors and from @wthashtag's #p2 page
  • list of 10 most frequent tweeters originally from @wthashtag, and then checked manually. more information below
  • all other data calculated manually using Twitter search. the links go to the queries we use. to get the actual numbers, i use the "older" link (or directly manipulate the page_id in the search URL) to get back to which page has the oldest tweet in the last 24 hours. you'd think there's a better way but apparently not.
