One year after monitoring 15 Twitter accounts, we have made an update of what has happened. The chart does not include the first two accounts, because their reach level affects comparative visibility.
Two of the accounts did not come back to life, despite their importance at the time of the first comparison. For the next analysis we will include other accounts that have grown in a sustainable manner, it quickly comes to mind @mappingGIS Which at this point already has 1,110 followers, more than those who have some of these accounts that we have monitored.

Bit by bit Twitter has come to fill a space that the media does not cover equally, especially for short topics, links and information in real time. With the same or worse disadvantage of going to the abyss after a couple of days, but playing an important role in the Dissemination of themesAnd management of followers. Here is a list of accounts in the geospatial area that should be followed; Some of them are media, others are accounts that add to the topic.
They are sorted according to followers, to April of 2012, the first two take almost the 50% of the 30,000 followers that represent in total the 15 accounts. Updated on red to August of 2012 and I have added a column of how much followers have grown in these 5 months.
The table does not change much but it can be observed that some sites have a slower growth than the common ones like URISA, Comunidad IGN and CamptoCamp. Spatial Sustain appears not available. Atctualized in magenta To December of 2012.
The trend remains at the top, it stands out that PortalGeografos, Mapping Magazine and CamptoCamp change positions again. And for some strange reason, Vector_One is not available after the creation of the LMA.
