15 Types of Twitter Users: Which Type Do You Think You Are?

Are Twitter users all the same to us or do we have different types of Twitter followers, regardless of their numbers and reasons for being on Twitter? What are the main types of Twitter users and what are their distinctive characteristics?

I am confident that throughout each of our offline daily experiences, we sometimes find ourselves categorizing people into different groups in order to determine how to better deal with them or not deal with them at all for that matter! When it comes to friends, different people have various categorizations of their friends depending on their personalities, behaviors, closeness, actions and common interests, this highly applies to our virtual online experiences, namely in Twitterverse.

I personally enjoy Twitter and the different personalities I encounter every day through tweets and mentions, which is the main basis for the idea behind this post!
