What Brands Rule Twitter? [INFOGRAPHIC]

There’s so much more than just follower count that determines top performance on Twitter.

Whether or not a brand is a Twitter champ depends on everything from how often it’s mentioned in other Twitter conversations, how quickly it responds to mentions, how much its Twitter activity generates in sales, and more.

This infographic from WhoIsHostingThis.com looks at five categories of brand domination in the Twitterverse: customer service, sales, social commerce, fundraising and authenticity.
