Twitter itself has found that the change has brought a 6% increase of activity for current users and 9% increase for new ones. In Locowise’s study, it is clear that the change has increased favoriting by 27.82%. The study looks at more than 1,500 Twitter profiles 3 months before and 3 months after it. The profiles checked, tweeted around 2.2 million times during that time, and got over 21 million favorites in total.

If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:

The average tweet before the change, received on average 8.16 favorites. The same after the change received 10.43 likes. Now, that’s a 27.82% increase in pressing a specific button – which is quite incredible actually.
