    LOVE the way it was presented. but how come the numbers don’t add up to 100 ?

    you’re absolutely right.
    it’s kind of a shame it’s not more accurate.
    however, i still thinks that it’s a wonderful way of illustrating stuff.

    David McCandless originally posted this – he aknowledges the schoolboy mistakes and he states on twitter that: grey people = not dead, non-lazy, not many followers, softly spoken :)

    Check out the string on twitter:

    it does add up to 100. Of the 100, 20 fall into the dead and 50 fall into the lazy. Of the remaining 30, only 5 have more than 100 followers (as I assume dead/lazy do not have >100 followers,) and 5 of those remaining 30 generate 75% of the tweets.

    M Tan – The remaining 20 that you perceive as not added up (shown here in gray) are the average users that do not fall into any of the particular category. They tweet more than once per week, but not enough to fall into the “loud mouth category…basically, the “missing” 20% are the active users who don’t just get on and spam.

    @Goody, it really does add up now.
    so thanks for the clarification!
