Infographic: ReTweets of Images Impacted By Service Used to Upload

Research conducted by Dan Zarrella, HubSpot’s social media scientist, did some research that found that Twitter users like to retweet images uploaded to get the most attention.

Zarrella reports

Tweets with images uploaded to were nearly twice as likely to be retweeted while the use of Twitpic increased the odds by just over 60%. On the other hand Tweets that used Facebook or Instagram links were less likely to be retweeted. In all four of cases, I found a 99% confidence interval assuring us of the reliability of these results.

Here is the infographic of the results


Any thoughts on why this bias against Facebook images?
