My year on Twitter, by @nwbrux

Since my last roundup on 23 December last year, I appear to have perpetrated 3,337 tweets and gained 769 followers, leaping from 1,625 to 2,394 (of which 250 were gained in the last two weeks of May, during my appearances on BBC Northern Ireland's election broadcasts).

The immigration post also scored the second highest number of potential impressions (ie adding up all the followers of everyone who retweeeted it) at 85,341.
