Are you just “meforming” on Twitter?


Most Twitter users are “meformers,” people who talk just about themselves, according to a study by professors at Rutgers University. Only about 20% of users are posting to the site with informational content, they note, though these users tend to have more followers. “Although the meformers’ self focus might be characterized by some as self-indulgent, these messages may play an important role in helping others maintain relationships,” the study notes.  The Miami Herald
