The Tweets of media outlets account for the largest percentage of information published on Twitter, a study has revealed.

According to a new Yahoo! Research study, news organisations Tweet the most updates and links, but celebrities are the most followed category of account.

Another staggering figure outlined in the ‘Who says what to whom on Twitter’ study reveals that just 20,000 ‘elite’ users of the social network generate half of the activity on the website.

The table below taken from the study outlines the top five users in each category, with CNN’s breaking news account the most followed media organisation.
