  • 62% post updates about their work-life and activities, and 12% post about that on a daily basis.
  • 55% share links to stories, 12% at least once per day.
  • 54% tweet humorous or life in general, 16% said so daily.
  • 53% of users retweet which is when a Twitter user shares what another says or posts.

I'm connected to Twitter all day via Hootsuite Mobile App or Hootsuite on my desktop.... Monitoring multiple accounts and responding to all @ replies and DMs... Once a month I take 1 whole day off from the internet....

I'm pretty much the same way Rich. Use Hootsuite on my desktop, but UberTwitter on my phone more so than Hootsuite Mobile. The take a whole day off every month, that doesn't sound like a bad idea :-)
