A Guide to Twitter Inspired by the Late Dr. Seuss [INFOGRAPHIC]

A Guide to Twitter Inspired by the Late Dr. Seuss [INFOGRAPHIC]

If Dr. Seuss were still alive today, not only would he be 110 years old, but he would most likely use Twitter as represented by the infographic below…or that’s at least what Hootsuite believes. This handy guide on how to master Twitter is inspired by the man behind timeless classics such as The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. For users who have trouble understanding Twitter or want to take their tweeting skills to the next level, this comprehensive guide  is extremely useful, pointing out proper social etiquette and some annoying Twitter habits that would drive the Grinch irate. Although, yours truly is left wondering what would have been trending in Whoville the night the Grinch stole Christmas. It most likely would have looked like:

  • #Grinch
  • #ChristmasProblems
  • #EvilGrinch
  • #FahWhoForAze
  • #DahWhoDorAze
  • #WheresMyChristmasTree

“Twitter really is simple, if you put in the time.”

I couldn’t agree more.

Some of the key figures from the report include:

  • 89% of a users mobile monthly usage on smartphones is done via applications, whereas the remaining 11% is done through mobile web.
  • The split is similar for tablets, with 81% of time spent on media is through applications, whereas the remaining 11 % is through mobile web.
  • The average American spends 11 hours a day with a form of electronic media.
