What happened to the Geospatial Top40 on Twitter

Six months ago We did a review of almost forty twitter accounts, within a list that we call Top40. Today we update on this list, to see what happened between May 22 and the end of December 22 2014. Of all, 11 are in English, two in Portuguese and the rest in Spanish.

The top 10 Geospatial.

From a total of almost 40 accounts, by applying an exponential graph, you can see that the intersection has gone up from 14,000 to 16,000.

The most interesting change in this 10 top is shown in the following graph, where the 75% is composed of six accounts, leaving three with the remaining 25%, among which are @geofumadas and @directionsmag that are right in the Trend line of the exponential curve.

New chart to December of 2014:

Top 40 geofumadas

This was the previous graph, where you can see that here only 8 accounts appeared; Now they are 9.

3 of these are of Anglo-Saxon origin (marked in red) while one of Portuguese origin (marked in green), then there are three of Hispanic origin, as we explained before, Network Engineering and BlogIngeniería really are not specifically geospatial segment, but Are a benchmark of accounts that can grow competitively.

May 2014 Account - December 2014

1. @geospatialnews 19,914 - 23,375

2. @gisuser 16,845 - 18,612

3. @ingenieriared 13,066 - 15,748

6. @gersonbeltran 9,519 - 10,520

7. @gisday 7,261 - 9,527

The 2 are exactly in the trend, equally separated from the rest of the queue:

8. @directionsmag 6,919 - 8,061

9. @geofumadas 4,750 - 7,300

The rest of the Geospatial Accounts Queue

Leaving the graph separating the first 8 accounts, we have a new graph in which we can distinguish four groups, starting precisely from the Esri_Spain account. The intersection climbed 5,200.

The next is the previous chart.

If the same graph, in a distributive way, we see a more representative view of what is in this collection of 27 accounts, in segments of 25% each one we call Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4:

Top 40 geofumadas

The next is the previous chart

Geo-spreads twitter geo2 accounts 550x249 The Top 40 Geospatial Twitter

Q1: 3 accounts

This segment maintains the same three accounts. These represent the 25% of accumulated followers, being Esri Spain is the only software account that I am including, for being an interesting reference in the geospatial sector.

The change in this segment is the entry of @geoinformatics after the jump from @geofumadas to top10, whereupon @geoinformatics1 enters this list.

May 2014 Account - December 2014

11. @URISA 4,299 - 5,055

12. @Geoinformatics1 3,656 - 4,491

Q2: 6 Accounts

This segment before had 5 accounts; Now they are 6, three of which are in English. We see interesting moves, especially @mappinggis that takes first place, and cases of @nosolosig that jumps from the post 21 to 15, @ gim_intl and @Geoactual. These three were before in the Q3.

17. @Cadalyst_Mag 2,519 - 2,746

18. @Geoactual 2,229 - 2,692

As we had said, the little activity of @orbemapa made him fall to Q3.

Q3: 7 Accounts

In this segment 7 accounts remain, although with several movements: @NewOnGISCafe and @gisandchips go up from Q4 to Q3. @comunidadign drops to Q4.

Q4: 13 Accounts

This list could be infinite, with accounts ranging from the 500 followers to the 1,700. We are only adding the MappingInteract account, since we had a confusion with your account in Spanish @revistamapping; The rest are the same as before. Of all these, only one is in English. There is also one in Catalan.

We added the @geoinquiets account to the list in the 27 position

Here you can see the List of this Top40 on Twitter

As an updated reference we leave the geographical evolution of the Geofumadas account, based on the FollowerWonk graphics:

This was in December of 2012, when we had only one node superior to the 100 followers in meso America and one in Spain above of the 400. Orange nodes represent tens and blues smaller than 10 followers.

This was before we reached the first node of 1,000 followers, and just one in the United States.

This is the map to May of 2014. With a super node in Spain, two in the United States, one in Mexico and three in South America which includes one in Brazil.

At December 2014, the super node of Spain has been distributed in two red nodes, possibly by the increase of Anglo-Saxon readers. While in America, the segments have been rearranged in the Mesoamerican area.
