Twitter says as many as 23 million accounts connect with automated services

We post to Twitter using automated methods as well as manually.  How does your organization interact with the micro-blogging platform?

In a new filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, the social networking service revealed that in the three months ended June 30, around 8.5 percent of its active accounts used third-party apps that automatically connect to Twitter for them, updating their streams without any effort. It’s unclear whether these services are used to automatically post to Twitter, or merely to read information from the network. Either way, this means among the 271 million active Twitter accounts in total, around 23 million aren’t putting much effort in.
