A new report on verified Twitter accounts shows that journalists are the most prevalent and the most active.
The report comes from Triggertrap CEO Haje Jan Kamps, and was published on Medium this week. It shows that 25 percent of Twitter’s verified users are journalists. The second highest percentage of verified users at 18 percent is sports teams and athletes.
While journos make up the highest proportion of verified users, their average follower count, when compared to athletes, celebrities and musicians, is relatively low at around 140,000.
