February 2014 #BrainTumorThursday Stats


I think that we may have been spoiled by the lofty numbers accomplished toward the end of 2013: February totals appears to be off from January.  I use “appears” because, more so than is typically the case, the totals we get from third party apps have informational gaps.  I know that the totals miss at least 5 million impacts (deliveries to people’s timelines) and perhaps a good many more.  So for February, we will have to rely on the best information available coupled with what I hope is a rational guess on my part.  So with a huge caveat about accuracy, February looks like this:

92M Impacts

7,500 Tweets

3,700 participants.

Completely accurate or not, 3,700 participants is quite significant – whether a tweet or a re-tweet each one of those people knowingly took an action to further brain tumor awareness. Now that is something to build on!
