Re: Does Active mean you tweet?
I'm glad you said that, Paul, as that was my thought too - that some people use Twitter more like a news feed or RSS reader, and not as a communication tool for themselves. It would be more revealing to be clear on how many people log in to view their feeds - that's "active" in my opinion.

I confess that while I do post on Twitter, I go through phases of having the time and inclination to post lots and respond to things. There's so much in my stream it's overwhelming at times.

Does Active mean you tweet?
"Earlier this month, a report from Twopcharts found that 44% of Twitter's registered users had never sent a tweet, calling into question the accuracy of the social network's monthly active user count."

Do you need to tweet to be an active user? I don't think so. I primarily use it to follow others like news stations, athletes, writers, police department etc. You can find out information quicker that way sometimes. I don't tweet at all really, but I would call my self an active user.
