Busiest Vine users send out more than 14 short videos a day

Some of the most active Vine users tweet an average of more than 14 Vines a day, according to data from analytics firm Topsy.

Prior to coming to Android at the beginning of the month, Vine said it had 13 million users. It was unclear how much these users actually participated in video-sharing. Topsy’s data offers an indication of at least the activity of some of the top users.

Using data from the week ended June 5, Topsy returned a list of 1,000 Twitter users who had shared the most Vine.co links. A majority of them posted 30 to 50 Vines during the week, while most of the rest posted between 50 and 100 Vines. A handful topped 100, with @amadeus_iom sharing 170 Vines in the one week.

When Topsy dug into the top-1,000 list, they found 81 users who scored a perfect “10” on the analytic firm's "influence meter." That is a meaures that examines the number of followers a user has and the popularity of that person's tweets.

The median number of Vines posted for this group was 32, with a range of 23 to 107. Among the top influencers tweeting: Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and singer Soulja Boy.
